Second time lucky 2016-07-19

Slugs and snails love chard nearly as much as me and I lost the first sewings overnight. Now with the help of eggshells and slug bait I have a beutiful crop which goes down just as well with adults and children. Tastes great, I'll definately be growing this one next year.

T&M replied on 2016-07-20: Thank you very much for taking the time to post your review. I was particularly interested in the slug and snail deterrents. I hope we can continue to be of service to you for years to come.

No germination this year after great success last. 2014-06-30

Bought these last year and had delicious and very pretty Chard for months so wanted to grow them again this year. No sign of germination so I've bought plugs from a Garden Centre. I guess we've just been unlucky this year.

T&M replied on 2014-06-30: Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear of your disappointment with your recent purchase. If you would like to contact our Customer care team on ccare@thompson-morgan.com, one of our agents will be happy to investigate this matter further.

beautiful and tasty! 2011-08-21

I've grown this every year for the past eight years, and I absolutely love it, stunning in the borders aswell as the veg beds,and so versatile, I use the small leaves in salads (still tastes just as good even if it bolts too!), larger leaves used like spinach in just about any recipe, and the stunning stems are great in soups, stews and stir fry. So easy and so very, very hardy, mine survived -18c last year with no protection, and was still producing right through until I dug it up in April to make room for more!!!

Too pretty to eat! 2011-05-10

Added this to the allotment but love the colours too much to pick & eat!! ;o) Easy to grow too.
