I have recently started terrace gardening. Trying with spinach,, but I am surprised about what's going wrong!!!!
Got the soil bed , seeds and growing material at garden guru outlet in bannerghatta. Tried twice putting seeds of spinach,, but none of the seed sprouted!!!

I have been growing veggies in my garden downstairs(around our house). Grown spinach umpteen number of times. But fail to know the reason behind the failure on the terrace......!

I notice lot of red ants in the pots.... Is that the reason...?

Do red ants eat spinach seeds. I could grow methi, beans and mooli but not spinach why......?Cry

If you have lots of ants they will definitely eat away the seeds. Did you buy the organic seed or the treated ones? organic seeds have no chemical coated on them.

dont sow them too deep. try it one more time. it should germinate.
