Start From Seed: Detailed instructions for direct seeding, or starting seeds indoors and transplanting.
Direct seed in the garden after the last spring frost. Plant small sections every three weeks for continuous harvests. Optimum germination occurs at soil temperatures from 55–70°F. For best results, sow seeds thickly, about 1" apart from each other, 1/8"-1/4” deep in 4" wide bands, allowing 6-8 inches between rows to allow weed cultivation; or broadcast seed over a weed-free bed.
Growing Conditions: Growing seasons, soil types, water and fertility requirements.
Magenta Spreen is frost sensitive, but tolerates the summer heat. It is best eaten while still young and tender, so regular succession planting is recommended to provide a continuous harvest all summer. It will readily reseed itself if left alone.
Pest Prevention: Organic solutions to common problems.
Magenta Spreen is generally pest-free.
Harvest: Is it ready yet? When to harvest and how to store your garden produce.
Cut leaves with scissors as needed. Use freshly picked as the delicate leaves do not last more than a day or two after harvest. Wash immediately before using and spin-dry in a salad spinner or pat dry with a towel.
