  • Swiss Chard does not transplant well and does best if the seeds are planted directly in the soil.
  • Sow about 6 seeds per foot directly into the garden as soon as soil can be worked in early spring to summer through mid spring.  Cover seeds with 1/2 inch of fine soil.
  • When seedlings are 3 to 4 inches high thin to 8 to 12 inches apart.
  • Use leaves from young thinned plants in salads.
  • Start cutting outer leaves when plants are about 8 inches tall for extended harvest, new leaves will grow out from the centre.
  • Cut back plants in late summer to rejuvenate them for fall production.
  • Swiss Chard is resistant to frost, and can be harvested well after first frost
