Planting & Harvesting
Seed Depth: 1/2″ (13mm)
Plant Space: 8″ (20cm)
Row Space: 24″ (61cm)

Start seeds outdoors in early spring to summer and again in fall for winter crops in mild climates. Prefers direct sun and regular watering. Chard is a cool weather vegetable and may withstand a very mild frost. Acidic soil will stunt growth.
Cut mature outer leaves at the base of the plant or use scissors to cut about one inch from the ground for baby leaves. Cook lightly to retain bright colors.
