Spinach is high in nutrients and is fast and easy to grow as a cut-and-come again ‘baby-leaf’ vegetable or for larger leaves.

It can be grown all year round if you choose the right varieties and works well in containers too. It’s tasty cooked, just wilted in the pan, or as young fresh leaves in a salad.
