Description Sowing More Info Delivery
Resembling a perpetual spinach beet, this RHS AGM variety produces pure green leaves and stems. However unlike perpetual spinach, Swiss Chard 'Green Wave' produces higher yields of slender stems with a milder flavour, making a delicious addition to salads and stir fries when young. The mature leaves and stems of leaf beet are superb as a steamed vegetable. The glossy crinkly green leaves make an attractive addition to the vegetable plot or even to the flower border, where plants will stand in good condition without bolting. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 40cm (16").

Sowing Months Flowering Months Harvest Months
Water Swiss Chard regularly, particularly during dry periods to ensure that the soil remains moist. Harvest Leaf Beet regularly by selecting a few leaves from each plant to promote fresh growth and to extend the cropping season.
Direct sow Leaf Beet seed outdoors from March to August. Grow Swiss Chard in a well prepared, moist, fertile seedbed in full sun or partial shade. Sow seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (1/2") 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.
