Description
Through sales generated from the National Trust seeds, a minimum of £7,500 will be given to the National Trust to help look after nature, beauty and history for everyone, forever.

For ‘midi size’ ( for sq.metre gardening) and ‘babyleaf’ which commercial growers have expressed interest to add colour to supermarket packs. Chards should be much more popular for gardeners and hopefully sales will increase.


1 packet (80 swiss chard seeds) (KA7419)

Sowing
Direct sow seed outdoors from March to July, in a well prepared, moist, fertile seedbed in full sun or partial shade. Sow seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (½") in drills 30cm (12") apart. Thin seedlings to 7cm (3") apart for 'baby leaves' which will be ready to harvest approximately 50 days from sowing. For larger chards/leaves thin to 15cm (6") apart, or 23cm (9") for mature plants.
More Info
Water Swiss Chard regularly, particularly during dry periods to ensure that the soil remains moist. Harvest regularly by selecting a few stems from each plant to promote fresh growth and to extend the cropping season.
