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.
