  • Planting Instructions

    When to Plant:

    • 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.

    How to Plant:

    • Sow in well-draining, rich, light soil, in full sun.
    • 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.
