Orach
Atriplex hortensis
Native to the Alps, formerly called “mountain spinach”, an annual species growing to 6’ at maturity, used as warm weather salad greens with spinach-like qualities. Cut as young seedlings or pick leaves as plant matures. Best salad quality comes from first 18” of growth. Mature plant is highly ornamental as seed bracts appear and enlarge in the same color as the leaves. Currently coming into use for floral arrangements. A good late summer pollen source for syrphid flies to help protect autumn crops from aphids.

(Atriplex Hortensis ) - Grow Orach seeds and grow some beautiful herb plants for an edible landscape. Atriplex hortensis, commonly referred to as Garden Orache,  Mountain Spinach, or French Spinach, is a hardy, annual herb plant that grows upright up to 72 inches tall depending on where it is grown. The leaves are variously shaped, but somewhat oblong, comparatively thin in texture, and slightly acid to the taste. The flowers are small and obscure, greenish or reddish, corresponding in a degree with the color of the foliage of the herb plant. The Orach herb is a cool season plant, but it does not bolt as quickly as regular spinach. The leaves can be harvested longer into the summer without any bitter taste, and they are used as salad greens or cooked. This Red Plume variety is also highly ornamental and prized for its red coloring.

How To Grow  Orach: Green Velvet is an annual herb suitable for full sun. Sow the Orach seeds in the spring as early as the soil can be worked. Thinly cover the herb seeds and keep them moist. Sow the seeds 2 inches apart and in rows 12 to 18 inches apart. Thin the young plants when they are 6 inches in height, leaving 12 to 18 inches for spacing. The thinned plants can be eaten. Harvest the young leaves like spinach.

Additional Policies and FAQs

When To Plant ?

The best time to plant in your area depends on the climate and rainfall patterns as well as the species you are planting. In cool climates, plant annuals, perennials or mixtures of annuals and perennials in spring, early summer or late fall. Fall plantings should be late enough so that seeds do not germinate until spring. Perennials can also be sown in early fall provided that there are at least 10-12 weeks of growing time before the plants go dormant for the winter. Late fall plantings are advantageous when supplemental irrigation cannot be provided and adequate rainfall is anticipated in the spring.

In mild climates, plant during the cooler months of the year, fall through spring, for best results. Fall plantings done prior to periods of rainfall will insure an early display of flowers the following spring.

Cold Treatment

Dampen a paper towel, place the flower seeds on the towel and seal it in a ziploc bag. Place the bag in the refrigerator for 3 - 4 weeks.

What is an heirloom or heritage seed?
The terms heirloom and heritage are synonymous. An heirloom plant is an open-pollinated, cultivated plant, or cultivar. Heirloom plants are not used in modern large-scale agricultural, but they were traditionally grown during earlier periods in human history. All heirloom seed are open-pollinated.
What is the difference between open-pollinated and hybrid seeds?
Open-pollinated plants are pollinated by birds, insects, wind, or other natural means. Under these conditions the plant will produce seeds naturally. When these seeds are harvested and re-planted they will reproduce the same plant as the parent. Conversely, a hybrid plant is the result of controlled pollination of inbred parent plants. The plant’s seeds are often sterile and, if they do germinate, they will not reliably produce the same plant as the parent or the yields.
What is the difference between GMO and non-GMO seeds?
A genetically modified organism (GMO) is an organism whose genetic substance has been changed using genetic engineering methods. Non-GMO seeds have not been genetically changed, and they are traditionally the same as they were originally created. Non-GMO seeds have all of the nutrition that animal and human bodies need for maximum growth and nutrition. Traditional seeds grow into plants that have been consumed for thousands of years. Non-GMO seeds offer you the peace of mind that the foods you grow and eat are as nature intended.
