    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

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.
