Aerogarden Gardeners Wiki

Spinach is a cold weather plant and is difficult to grown in the Aerogarden. Only the Strawberry Spinach species (McKenzie Seeds) appears to be compatible.[1]

Spinach is a compact green, loose-leaf plant that grows up to about 30cm tall. It is grown for its oval to triangular leaves, which can be eaten either raw or cooked. It is a cool-season plant. The leaves may be of three types: savoyed (which means crinkly), semi-savoyed (which means less crinkly) and smooth (which means not crinkly).
