Bloomsdale Long Standing Spinach (Heirloom, 42 Days)

3 reviews

Heirloom 1925. Dark green frilly leaves and excellent flavor characterize this early spring variety. Use for spring and fall plantings.


Spinacia oleracea

Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 50-70ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2" deep

Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before planting out in early to mid spring. Provide 50-65ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant after last frost, 6-12" apart.

Sowing Outdoors: Start in early spring when soil temperature is over 50ºF. Sow a few seeds every 1-3", thin to 6-12" for full sized plants. Sow heavy seeded rows, 30 seeds per foot, every 10-14 days for baby greens using the Pinetree spinach mix or larger 1000 seed packet. Sow in mid to late summer for fall harvests.

How much does a packet plant: Small packet= 6-10 feet, large packet = 80-100 feet for mature plants or 20-25 feet for baby greens 

Harvest:Starting with baby greens at 3” or the entire plant before it bolts.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost or well rotted manure and keep well watered. Sow in the fall and cover with mulch for an early spring crop.

I recommend this product
patience is our middle names

I have been a customer for YEARS and have never, ever been disappointed. Customer service is great, the people are affable and listen well, on those rare occasions I get a wrong product or one that doesn't germinate (did I say RARE) not only do they send a new seed packet, but I can keep the incorrect product. I love their catalog, too. Great place and great people to deal with.
