Bloomsdale Longstanding is a spinach that may very well become your favorite. The large leaves of this variety are thick, dark green and have a crinkled texture. Slow to bolt and only taking 45 days to mature, this is a great choice for late spring and summer planting.
Because Bloomsdale spinach loves cool weather and can survive sub-zero temperatures when protected sufficiently, Bloomsdale spinach seeds should be planted as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring or after the heat of summer for a fall crop. Gardeners in regions with warmer winters will be able to grow spinach all winter long. Sow the seeds in deeply worked soil 1/2" deep and 2" apart in rows 12-18" apart, later thinning seedlings to 4-8" apart. For continuous crops, plant more seeds every 10 days until the summer heat begins. Spinach seeds go dormant above 80-85°. Spinach also loves shade and can be planted under tall plants such as corn or pole beans.
