How to grow Securo
Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to apply water fairly sparingly. Keep in mind when planting that Securo is thought of as half hardy, so it will require protection in frosts and low temperatures. Use USDA Hardiness Zone 6 - 9 as your guideline for the appropriate climate for this plant. Ideally plant in loamy soil and try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 6.0 and 7.0 as Securo likes to be in weakly acidic soil to neutral soil.
Growing Securo from seed
Sow at a depth of approx. 0.49 inches
(1.25 cm) and aim for a distance of at least 3.12 inches
(8.0 cm) between Spinach plants. Soil temperature should be kept higher than 8°C / 46°F
to ensure good germination.
By our calculations, you should look at sowing Securo about 60 days before your last frost date.
Ensure that temperatures are mild (minimum night temperatures should be around 0°C / 32°F) and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Securo is a half hardy plant.
