Instructions - Spinach is a cool-season hardy annual. Like all leafy greens, spinach thrives in fertile and moist soil. Spinach is sensitive to soil pH, preferring a range of 6.5-7. Magnesium deficiency manifests in yellowing leaves similar to nitrogen deficiency. Because spinach will carry excess nitrates if over-fertilized, try correcting Magnesium first. Direct seed as soon as soil can be worked in the spring, and again in the late summer-early fall.
