“When gardeners garden, its not just the plants that grow, but the gardeners themselves.”

Feature Plant:

Spinach!

Popeye’s favourite, spinach the super green!

This dark green leafy vege is packed with loads of nutrients important for skin, hair and bone health. It is one of the most versatile leafy greens which can be eaten raw and cooked and blended into smoothies too!

The spinach takes it roots from ancient Persia and is still a widely popular vegetable today! The plant is easy to grow, preferring a sunny position with well drained soil and plenty of organic fertiliser and a steady watering regime.

The best time of the year to grow Spinach is from Spring to late Autumn. Remember to give your plants a dose of liquid seaweed fertiliser like Katek Neptune & Super Growth every couple of weeks and you’ll have plenty of leafy greens to harvest in no time at all!
