If you are looking for great tasting, heat resistant greens, look no further! One packet sows approx. 6 m (20') of row.
Culture: Swiss chard will grow in a wide range of soils, but make its best growth in fertile, well drained soils with a pH of 6.5 to 7.5. Plant seed about 1-2 cm (1/2-3/4") deep and 2.5 cm (1") apart in rows 45 cm (18") apart starting in mid spring. Sow every two weeks until early summer to ensure a continuous supply.
Gradually thin out to 10 cm (4") apart using the thinnings as baby greens. Harvest outer leaves first by cutting at the base of the stem then working towards the centre as you go. By regularly harvesting the leaves, you will encourage a continuous supply of tender new growth.
