Only 653 items in stock!

Bloomsdale is a garden-fresh flavored standard spinach. Plant in the fall, and it will overwinter and mature in the early spring. Sow in early spring for late spring/early summer harvest. Decent bolt and heat resistance. 4 g ~ 300 seeds.

Plant seeds directly into the garden starting 4-6 weeks before average last frost date and continue planting every 2 weeks until the average last frost date. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 50-65 degrees. Sow thickly, then thin to 1 plant every 3-4". Plant again in late summer up until about 3-4 weeks before average first frost date. Spinach seeds do not germinate well in warm soil. To overwinter spinach for a very early season crop, plant 4 weeks before the average first frost date, mulch heavily with straw or leaves, and harvest in early spring.
