Spinach leaves are packed with vitamins and minerals and are about as healthy as you can get.
The best thing is, they’re really easy to grow and again, are very versatile when it comes to dinners and lunches.
Sow spinach leaves in early spring and they will be ready to eat by the summer.
Sow outside in a small but sunny part of your garden, or plant in pots or window boxes.
They don’t need huge amounts of space so they can be grown in shallow containers, but as with beetroot, don’t plant too many close together.
