Description

Bloomsdale Spinach is an heirloom, open-pollinated spinach variety known for it's heat-tolerance in late spring and early fall. Also known as "long-standing spinach," this variety was introduced in the 1920s and has been a favorite of backyard gardeners since. Bloomsdale produces plants with an upright growth habit. This keeps the leaves cleaner during periods of heavy precipitation and also allows for easier harvesting.

The leaves are thick and heavily savoyed or crinkled. They are also dark green and very nutritious. This is a great variety for raw consumption or cooking. Use it as the base for your favorite salad, or lightly sauté for a flavorful, delicious side dish.

 

Growing Information

Bloomsdale Spinach may be direct-seeded or transplanted. Transplanting allows for more consistent plant spacing and prevents seedlings from competing with weeds in the early stages of the plant. We recommend starting transplants 3-4 weeks before the desired outdoor planting date. Spinach transplants grow great in our heavy-duty seed starting trays, where they develop a solid root ball with roots that are trained to grow downward. Plants are ready to go in the ground when they can be easily pulled from the cells in the seed starting tray.

For direct-seeding, we suggest using the #2 seed plate with our Hoss Garden Seeder. It is important to always check the hole size to make sure the seeds can freely flow through the holes. If necessary, drill the holes slightly larger to accommodate the seed. When direct seeding, we suggest planting a dense bed so that any weed growth is shaded once plants get larger.

Plan to use in fall garden...

I'm so thrilled Greg and the Hoss Team are now stocking seed tapes! They are a real time saver for me and without them I'd likely pass on seed starting because time got away from me...there's always so many chores nd projects that come up, seed starting seems to take last seat. I've been planting Scarlet Nantes carrots and Detroit Red beets for years using seed tape and love the fact that I don't have to thin seedlings, worry about spacing or handling those tiny seeds - just draw down a shallow trench and lay the seed tape down, cover and water and before I know it seeds have germinated and the plants begin to emerge. I'm really happy that Hoss is expanding to include lettuce and spinach. I plan to use this seed tape in my fall garden along with some kale. I freeze dry both, crush them in the blender and store in mylar bags. One tblspn is equivalent to THREE veg services and are wonderful along with strawberries a little almond milk and whey protein for a morning smoothy - YUM. If you don't already use seed tape I encourage you to try, you'll never look back!
