Steps for seed sowing (Seed starting) in a container:

  • Select a container with uniform drainage holes at the bottom.

  • Make shallow holes (1 cm) at a distance of 3 x 3 inches throughout the surface of soil medium.
  • Sow 2-3 seeds per hole.
  • Push the seeds little in the soil medium with your fingers & cover them completely with the surrounding soil.
  • Water the sown seed bed immediately by a light shower with a watering can.

    Thinning:
  • If more than one seed has germinated per hole, cut off the smaller seedlings & only keep one seedling per hole.
  • Baby spinach plants will be visible in 10-15 days.
  • Mature leaves will be ready to harvest in 30 days.

  • How to take care for Spinach(Palak) Plant:

    Manuring: As mentioned earlier, add good quality organic manure in the soil with 2:1 ratio before sowing seeds. Organic fertilizer can be well rotten cow dung manure, farmyard manure, compost or vermicompost.

    Plant care: Always look for the early signs of any insect/fungal infection/ any other infections. Spray appropriate medicines as soon as any symptoms of such diseases are spotted.

    Microgreens: If you plan to grow microgreens spinach. Grow it indoors in flat containers. Sow-scatter the seeds in a crowded manner. You can harvest it in 10-15 days by uprooting baby plants.
