What do mean by "spinach"? I know 4 or 5 species called that.
What is your climate like? This is an international forum, you need to give people some help with such details.
Why do you not want to start them in seed trays?

greens, including spinach, according to the planting depth suggested on the package, in Sept-Oct. (depending on average temperatures) and again in Feb-Mar, again depending on anticipated temperatures. Of course because of the wide-row planting, spacing is somewhat closer. The tradition down here is that Valentine's day is the latest that spring greens can be planted with the expectation of actually getting a crop before they bolt prematurely. Throughout much of FL, Spring is approx. 10 days in late Feb or early Mar. and then it's summertime.     At any rate, the point is: Follow the instructions on the package for planting depth and the seeds may safely be spaced considerably closer than specified, particularly, if wide-row planted. Common problems with germination (discounting improper seed storage) are planting depth, excess soil compaction, and overwatering. Old-timers in the South frequently simply sow "greens" seeds in a fairly wide swath and rake them in with a lawn rake and water sparingly until germination.
