Once seedlings have grown their first set of true leaves, thin the plants to around 6 inches apart . Water spinach frequently to keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy . Regular watering is essential in warm weather to prevent bolting . In general, spinach needs around 1 to 1 1/2 inches of water per week . Rather than a weekly deep watering, it’s better to water several times a week . Adding a layer of mulch around the plants also can help to maintain soil moisture .
