Medania produces a good quality flavoursome dark green leaf ideal for winter growing. It is slow to bolt and has good resistance to mildew. It is suitable for growing in containers and if sown in autumn Medania will produce a good crop of cut and come again leaves before winter sets in. Overwinter crops will need to be covered with a cloche and in early spring the plants bounce back to life again producing an abundance of juicy spring leaves when very little else is available.

  • An ideal spinach variety for growing over the winter months.
  • Award winning - RHS Award of Garden Merit.
  • Slow to bolt.

Suitable For - Vegetable plot, raised beds, container garden, limited space

Sowing Months - July - September

Harvest - September - May

Sowing Guide

Early Sowing/Module Sowing

Sow 2 - 3 seeds per 4 cm module. Once germination starts move to an area with good daylight exposure, a windowsill or greenhouse is ideal. 2 - 3 weeks after germination (depending on speed of growth) plant out. Harden off over 5 - 7 days before planting out especially early sowings. Plant out at the distance suggested above. Firm the soil around each plants and water well.

Direct Sowing

Sow 1 seed every 1 - 2 cm at the depth and row distance suggested above. Cover the seeds with soil and water well. Thin out in stages so that eventually the plants are 10 cm apart. The thinning's should be big enough to eat.

Growing On

If growing outdoors over the winter months cover the crop with a cloche in late autumn. Remove yellowing leaves throughout the season.


Start to harvest spinach when the leaves are small but at a size worth while picking. Pick outer leaves first, they should still be young and tender. Pick regularly to encourage more leaves to grow.
For winter grown spinach avoid removing too many leaves from one plant at one time as the plants might struggle to recover and survive the winter months. A good amount of leaves should be available up until December. Pickings should however be very light during December, January and February as growth will have slowed down or stopped over the colder months. However by early spring the plants should bounce back into life again producing an abundance of juicy tender leaves once again up until early summer.
To avoid damaging the roots when harvesting, cut the leaves with scissors or a sharp knife rather than tugging on them.


Spinach leaves can grow large. Regular pickings will keep the leaves small and tender.
