Seaside Spinach Plant Care  

Like other varieties of spinach, Seaside Spinach Plant prefers cooler weather. To avoid the hottest weather periods, plant this leafy annual in early spring or fall. The flavor of this spinach is better before it goes to seed. You can delay bolting by planting Seaside Spinach Plant in a space that preferably gets early morning sun and afternoon shade; spacing it at least 6 inches apart from the next plant; ensuring its soil is loamy, moist, slightly acidic, and well draining; maintaining it in cool temperatures; and providing this annual with at least 1 to 2 inches of water per week. Use a pair of sterilized scissors to trim the leaves. Continuous harvesting will satisfy any pruning needs this plant may have. Harvesting encourages more foliage to grow.

Growing Seaside Spinach Plant 

Reaching a maximum height of 5 to 7 inches and a spread of 6 to 8 inches, Seaside Spinach Plant produces leaves that are ready to be harvested in as few as 20 days. Depending on its location, this annual needs 4 to 8 hours of full sun to thrive. When growing this plant indoors, provide it with at least 6 hours of bright direct light and 1 to 2 inches of water per week. 

Seaside Spinach Plant will thrive in a container that is at least 8 to 12 inches in width and 10 inches deep. This plant does not relish being transplanted, so refrain from repotting during the season if possible. Seaside Spinach Plant can be planted as a filler or spiller in a container.

Watering Seaside Spinach Plant 

Seaside Spinach Plant adores moisture, so ensure that this annual gets at least 1 to 2 inches of water per week. It does not tolerate soggy conditions, so perform a moisture check prior to watering. Water when the top 2 to 3 inches of soil are dry below the soil’s surface. 

Feeding Seaside Spinach Plant 

Seaside Spinach Plant is a fast grower and requires a lot of nutrients. To support this growth, fertilize this annual twice a month with a balanced (10-10-10) fertilizer.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
