Plant care and instructions
Soak the seeds in water the night before planting. In spring, sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and approximately 18 inches apart. Cover with soil and water well. Keep the soil moist until the seeds germinate. When seeds germinate, pour liquid fertilizer over the seedlings, making sure to wet all of the leaves. Add a thin layer of straw mulch to hold in the moisture and help prevent weeds. Malabar spinach does not have many pests or diseases. If the plant gets too big, simply cut it back.
