Spinach Medania is an easy to grow spinach and has deep green, crunchy leaves. Crops for a long period in well-drained soil and if watered well in dry weather. If you love spinach, sow the seeds every two weeks to have a continuous supply of fresh young leaves. Excellent taste and texture, ideal for freezing.
Spinach is a good source of Vitamins A and C. Sow the medania spinach seeds from early spring directly outside in a well-raked bed around 1 cm deep. Rich, well-drained soil is recommended.
Thin out to 5-10cm apart as the seedlings appear. Water well in dry spells. Harvest the young leaves as required, picking only a few from each plant, as a cut and come again crop spinach will produce for quite a few months. Spinach prefers a semi-shady location, especially during the summer months. The first young leaves are ready to pick within 30 days.
