They should come up in 7-14 days depending on soil and weather conditions. Sow in early spring for the first crop, and again every 7 days for an extended spinach harvest. Grows best in average, well-drained soil, and full sun. Keep well watered and fertilize after thinning.

Early harvest

Super cold hardy

I planted these spinach seeds for the last falls in September, and kept a plastic saucer over them and they still grow in the winter even now in January, albeit slowly. In the super early spring they start to take off and we have more spinach than we know what to do with. I'm surprised they are so winter hardy, but glad to have some super early greens in March/April.
