Description Sowing More Info Delivery
Spinach ‘Monnopa’ contains low levels of oxalic acid, giving it an excellent, sweet flavour. With an upright habit, it is easy to grow and harvest, providing you with a generous supply of rounded, pale green leaves. Perfect for harvesting as baby leaves or growing on as mature plants. Grow crops in the vegetable plot or sown in patio containers, positioned conveniently outside your back door. Height and spread: 20cm (8").


1 packet (500 spinach seeds) (KA2678)

Sow seeds March to September, at 2 week intervals, thinly, 12cm (0.5 inch) deep in drills 30cm (12 inches) apart in well-drained, fertile soil, which has been raked to a fine tilth. Water ground regularly, especially in dry periods. Thin out seedlings at an early stage, to 10cm (4 inches) apart. Keep cool and moist to prevent running to seed. Alternatively, leave unthinned to produce 'baby leaf' crops.

Thinnings can be trimmed at the roots and used in the kitchen. Harvest main leaves as and when required. Snap off close to the ground, and select from several plants to ensure a continuous supply is maintained.

Water spinach regularly as dry conditions may cause spinach plants to bolt. Hoe between rows to prevent weeds from establishing. A thick mulch applied around the plants will help to retain moisture in the soil. Harvest spinach leaves when required by picking a few leaves from each plant. Regular harvesting will promote a constant supply of fresh young growth. Alternatively pull up whole, mature plants.
