Priming Spinach Seeds For Quicker Sprouting
Great article on growing spinach. This article talks about priming spinach seeds in order for them to sprout quicker once they are sown. I had never heard of priming spinach seeds which involves soaking in water and then drying then giving them a stint in an airtight container. This lets them absorb some water to begin the germination process before they are ever put into the ground. So once they are sown the sprouting takes place very quickly. I like this idea because if some of the seeds fail to germinate you could replace them and still have them sprouting in the same amount of time that sowing the seed without priming would take but you could avoid the blank spaces and spinach always seems to have some seeds that just don’t germinate. So now you can prime the spinach seeds and have full rows of spinach. Get the instructions from Growveg.
