    How to Grow Perpetual Spinach Swiss Chard

    When to Plant Swiss Chard Seeds

    Starting Indoors: sow seeds indoors in the early Spring, 4 – 6 weeks prior to the last heavy frost of the season has passed. Sow seeds ½" deep, 2 seeds every 2", thin to 4" -6” apart.

    Starting Outdoors – directly sow seeds 2 – 3 weeks before the last spring frost date. For a fall harvest, plant Chard seeds about 40 days before the first fall frost date.

    Where to Plant Swiss Chard Seeds

    Plant your Swiss Chard in well-draining, rich, light soil, in full sun.

    How to Plant Swiss Chard Seeds

    Prepare your planting area by turning over soil under to a depth of 8 inches. Level with a rake to remove any clumps of grass or debris. Sow about 6 inches apart and cover with ½ inch fine soil. Compress seeds lightly into the soil and keep area evenly moist. Keep the soil moist but not saturated. Seedlings emerge in about 7-14 days. Once seedlings are 2 – 4 inches tall, thin them out so that they are 12 inches apart.

    How to Harvest Swiss Chard

    When leaves are 8-10" long, cut the outer leaves 1-2" above the soil. Once you begin to harvest, you can continue until frost begins

Good Service, good product

This variety grows like chard but looks a bit more like spinach. It tastes more like chard but generally not as strong a flavor. There is only a hint of spinach flavor. The leaves are more leathery than spinach when raw. Cooks faster than chard. Pest free except for slugs, but the slugs like the chard I grow better. Very reliable and productive all season.

We bought these seeds in April and planted them in Grow Boxes. This is by far the most delicious chard/spinach that we have ever eaten. We eat the greens daily raw and cooked. In just a month the greens were tall enough to eat and they keep producing. We love it so much were buying more so we can plant in our green house throughout the fall and into the winter. We love kale, chard, and even broccoli greens.. however these take the lead!
