Description

An easy, reliable and milder alternative to spinach, which is very fast and easy to grow, cropping for much of the year.

Outdoors: Sow thinly, March-July, where they are to crop, 2.5cm (1″) deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 40cm (16″) between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Water well until plants are established. Thin out to 15cm (6″) apart. 1 or 2 further sowings will ensure a continuous supply of leaves. Harvest: June-October. Pick a few leaves at a time, without stripping plants. Give cloche protection from October onwards to encourage cropping into the winter months.

Tip: Pinch out the central shoots of the plants to prolong the period of harvest. Cook leaf beet as you would spinach.
