Grow Spinach In A Flower Pot



 2631
Ever tired to grow spinach in a flowerpot?  It's easy to do and look how lovely!
 
It's always easiest to start out with a beginner plant but if you want sowing seeds is easy to do.  Next you want to decide on the container you are going to us.  Make sure that it's at least 8" deep any pot more shallow will make the root system become root bound and this is very unhealthy.  I say go a bit larger than you originally wanted. Wide pots are good so this is a great time to go with a window box rectangle, or a garden bowl or wok shape.  Terracotta clay is also the best because it is meant to breathe and is the healthiest for the roots.

Space the plants 3" apart if you want large leaves or 2" if you plan on harvesting the leaves while they are still young.  Use a rich potting mix and water till moist but not soggy.  Make sure the
planter has a drain hole for water run-off.  If it's gets to hot you may need to move the pot to the shade so the leaves don't burn.  Growing spinach in flowerpots doesn't need special care.  Just follow the basics and you should be good to go.
