Growing Calendar for Swiss Chard Seeds - Bright Lights
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
Grow Swiss Chard Bright Lights on your vegetable plot for attractive stems in an inviting mixture of colours. Recognised by the Royal Horticultural Society as a great crop for home-growing this is the perfect addition to your plot.
Not only are they visually appealing, the different colours attract different pollinating insects which pollinate nearby flowers of strawberries, tomatoes and other fruiting crops.
Harvest the stems as baby leaves to bring colour to salads leaving a number of other stems to mature. Cut and prepare these leaves separately for use in stir-fries.
Pretty enough for the flower border too we recommend this variety for allotments or indeed the garden flower border.
Attractive multi coloured stems.
Sow Outdoors: April-August thinly, direct into the required harvest position, ½in (1.25cm) deep in rows 12in (30cm) apart. Keep soil moist at all times.
Grow On: If necessary thin seedlings to 6in (15cm) apart.
Harvest: January-December use stems and leaves in stir- fries
Use thinnings as salad leaf. Use fleece to protect crop from frost or cold wind.

So far so good, will see how the chard progresses once the weather deteriorates.
Disappointing again that so few germinated. Those that have are good
