Heirloom Vegetable. This savoy leaved spinach has thick, twisted, glossy leaves that are excellent raw in salads or steamed as a side dish. Look for big yields with this heat and cold tolerant variety. Bloomsdale helps extend the harvest as it is slow to bolt when the heat of summer arrives. Harvest multiple crops by sowing in both early spring and again in late summer. A garden staple since the mid 1920’s!
How to Grow
80 seed/gram Sow seed 12 mm (1/2″) deep and 2.5 cm (1″) apart in rows 30-45 cm (12- 18″) apart as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring and every two weeks after that until late spring. Thin to 5-7.5 cm (2-3″) after germination – this is the secret to the best crops. Bloomsdale can be sown again in mid to late August for fall crops. Top-dress with compost after seedlings are well established.
