US source for perpetual spinach (aka spinach beet, leafbeet)
I grew perpetual spinach last year. I got the seeds from Fedco. I loved it. It’s a type of chard, but the stems are very thin, and the texture is very much like spinach, and this was a really nice green to put in summer salads when all the mustards were growing bitter. It grew all summer and withstood some cold — for all I know, it’s still doing fine under the snow.
Unfortunately, I got poor germination from the Fedco seeds. Can anyone suggest another source for perpetual spinach seeds?0 thumbs up!Posted over 3 years ago
Hi there! You're reading a conversation in the Greens! group on Folia.
This is a group about plants grown mostly for their leaves. These are usually thought of as salad greens (eaten raw) and potherbs (eaten cooked), although the same plant can obviously be in both categories. Please contribute your garden experiences and future plans regarding the growing of greens, and any recipes you have for how to prepare them.
