Biodegradable seed tape makes growing spinach so much easier. The seedlings already come pre-spaced for you, so it’s just a case of positioning them. Start by digging trenches 1.5cm deep, at about 30cm apart.
All you need to do is unroll the seed tape and cover with fine soil. To make life easier, you can secure one end with a heavy stone, pulling the tape straight along your trench. Make sure to sow 4-6 weeks before the last frost, allowing the best amount of time for optimum growing conditions.
Always take extra care to keep newly planted crops well-watered, as you want the soil to be moist and pull up any troublesome weeds. To avoid any chance of mildew, make sure to direct the water at the base of the plant. Seedlings should start sprouting within 7-14 days, ready to harvest within six to eight weeks’ time.
