Malabar spinach is unusual in being one of the few salad crops that climb. So it has potential to help make most of small spaces.
To grow well, it does like warmth - last time I tried to grow it outside here in Newcastle it died…Indeed, I’ve never really grown it successfully, so this year I thought I’d cheat a bit and try it in the polytunnel at the allotment. But if you live in a warmer climate (even a bit further south like London would probably be OK) it should be ok outside, I think.
I sowed mine ten days ago, here it is just coming up. I’ve got it at home at the moment, inside at night, outside on sunny days. Will let it get a bit bigger before taking up to the polytunnel. Hope it will grow large enough so I can taste it this year!
Anyone else grown or growing Malabar spinach?
