Chinese Spinach

    4 responses

John marquez starts with ...
I remember seeing on a gardening show a lady that was growing "Chinese Spinach" in her front yard. It looked like a ground cover, and everytime she needed spinach she would just pluck leaves off it. I think it mentioned it grew all year round ans it was in Melbourne.
Could anyone enlighten me on this, and also where i could obtain seedings.

When I hear of "Chinese spinach" I think of "Ong Choy" or "Water spinach" but that's very tropical and I'm pretty sure it wouldn't grow in Melbourne. Could it be "New Zealand Spinach" aka "Warrigal Greens"? That's a ground cover and is pretty tough. I'm growing it right now in Melbourne and it's going like mad and I just keep chopping lots off and cooking it. I have two plants and it's enough for two people to have one or two meals a week without compromising the size of the plant.

Thanks Justin!
I might just do that. It sounds similar to the one im talking about. So where would be a good place to purchase some. And would it be in seed form or seedlings.

Yes Tran i shall go get myself some seeds as i am not far from Footscray.
One to two meals a week incorporating some healthy homegrown greens sounds good to me.
