Growing Calendar for Quinoa Seeds - Rainbow Blend
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
A 'super food' that’s extremely easy to grow. All you need is a sunny open, spot. Gluten-free, high in protein and full of vitamins- this is the perfect superfood to add to your diet and with so much at harvest-time there’s no need to pay over the odds at the shops.
Choose a sunny spot and watch these attractive plants grow to 6' (1.8m) as the weather warms. As the seeds ripen the varieties in the blend give a rainbow of colour.
Harvest when the leaves start to drop on a dry day by placing in a paper bag and drying thoroughly. Cook as required as you would rice or couscous.
We recommend you sow quinao seeds in rows outdoors in April or May. Simply mark out a shallow furrow with your finger along the row. Sprinkle seeds along the row continually but thinly. Cover the seeds with soil and water.
Once the seeds germinate keep watering daily. When the seedlings have about four leaves, remove all seedlings except one to grow on at 10in (20cm) spacings.
Keep well-watered as soon as the seeds germinate and you’ll put your quinoa plants in good stead. Keep up the watering and weeding around them through the summer and then enjoy the rainbow colours at harvest time.
How your seeds arrive
Your Quinoa Rainbow Blend variety arrives to you as a well-sealed packet of 450 seeds with variety and cultural information on the front and the back of the packet.
This includes the best sowing time, benefits of growing the variety, harvests time, top tips and other handy bits of information to help you to grow your crop successfully and enjoyably.
Can’t plant straight away?
If you need to wait until the advised time of sowing which is given on the packet check the ‘Best Before’ date given on the packet and keep the packet in a dry and cool place like a drawer in an unheated room or garage.
Plug plants can be hit and miss but so far, those ordered from Marshalls are a hit. Thank you Marshalls!
I am looking forward to watching them grow. I always try something different each year on my allotment.
