• Success with Spinach

    spinach plant covered with a plastic bag I find I have variable success with growing spinach – too early and it sulks, too late and it romps away and runs to seed before I’ve had a decent picking. And the slugs love it, as do greenfly.  Anyway…….. this year I sowed early in the greenhouse and then planted outdoors in a large terracotta pot that I covered with a plastic bag over some metal hoops. I tied the bag in place around the rim of the pot to stop it flapping and keep the slugs at bay.  Voila! A lovely crop of succulent spinach in unmunched condition. fresh spinach
