Discover: Perpetual Spinach

Perpetual Spinach is a great, easy to grow, 'cut & come again' productive little plant that is winter hardy. It is a beet leaf that tastes like spinach but doesn't bolt like spinach and produces the earliest fresh vegetable of the year.

It can last for up to 2 years if picked regularly. Leaves should be used fresh so if you have too many give them away to friends or use them on your compost heap. The smaller immature leaves have a milder flavour. Good in containers too!

An easy to maintain and productive addition to the allotment.
