Spinach Seed Planting Information:

Spinach is a curly leaf plant and used fresh of cooked like a green. Spinach does not do well in very hot weather. It will stop producing leaves when during the hot summer days. You can have successive plantings throughout the year by planting every three weeks. Spinach seeds are usually planted directly in the garden. In the spring, plant seeds 4 to 6 weeks before last frost date. Plant in August for fall harvest. Plants grow 3 - 8" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Keep soil consistently moist. Water well during dry and hot spells. Water in the morning only, on the side of the plants and not directly on the leaves.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro periodically.

Harvest Tips:

You can cut outer leaves as you need them if you want the plant to produce more leaves, or you can cut the entire plant at ground level.


DM – Downy Mildew

Scientific Name: Peronospora farinosa, Peronospora parasitica, Pseudoperonospora cubensis

Type: Fungus

Downy mildew is a fungal disease that affects the growth of beets, broccoli, cantaloupes & melons, cauliflower, cucumbers, spinach, Swiss chard, and watermelons. Downy Mildew is most serious for cucumbers, which can drop dead in a week and stop producing any fruit to harvest. The disease affects both seedlings and mature plants.The infected leaves are retarded in growth, turn yellow then brown, and turn downward. A white to gray color mold appears on the underside of the leaves. The leaves will wilt and eventually die. The disease can spread rapidly under favorable conditions and infect the entire field. The infected plants should be removed and burned to avoid further infestation. The disease is favorable when temperatures are 58-72 F and usually occur in early spring and autumn in cooler weather when moisture and humidity are very high. Fungicides can help manage the disease. Good air circulation and increasing space between the plants can help control and prevent the disease, so use wide plant spacing to promote drying of the leaves. The best option is to use disease resistant varieties.

R - Rust

Scientific Name: Puccinia asparagi, Puccinia sorghi

Type: Fungus

Rust, also known as Common Rust, is a world-wide soil borne disease that affects the growth of asparagus, cantaloupes & melons, corn, and lettuce. It is one of the most destructive disease in growing asparagus in the United States. The disease affects the ferns on asparagus. Lesions develop and turn cream-orange color, then turn a reddish-brown color, then eventually turn a brick red or rust color. During the winter the lesions will turn a black color. Severe infestation stunts or kills young asparagus shoots. The infected plants should be removed to avoid further infestation. When corn is infected the disease affects the upper and lower leaf surfaces, where small specks appear on the leaves, then develops into small tan spots, and distinguished by cinnamon-brown pustules. These pustules blister and turn dark brown to black late in the season. Corn stalks are weakened and stalk rot potential increases. Significant damage to upper leaves results in significant yield losses. Common rust spreads by windblown spores. The disease is also favorable cool and moist conditions when temperatures are 68-72 F, and usually occurs when there is nine hours of wet weather. The best option is to maximize air movement between the plants and to use disease resistant varieties.
