Session Two Care Card
Spinach
 
  • Your spinach plants will need to be watered every two days but if the weather is very hot water them every day.

  • Keep your spinach plants free of weeds - weeds are any other plant which grows near your spinach which isn't the spinach plant!

  • If you have any compost left put it around the bottom of the plant, about 2/3 cm thick.

  • Watch out for slugs on your seedlings, see the Slug Action Plan (in Extras) to find out how to get rid of slugs without harming them or using chemicals.
  • Spinach plants may attract aphids which are tiny creatures which feed off the plant and can make the leaves to go yellow. If you see aphids these can be sprayed off using a powerful spray of water.
