Swiss Chard Rainbow Mix Seeds
Info: Swiss Chard Rainbow Mix is a real eye-catcher in the vegetable patch with different coloured stems in red, orange, white, pink, yellow and cream. An absolute must and one of the best looking vegetables around. Eat the young leaves in salads and save the larger leaves for steaming, stir-frying, or chopping and sautéing.
Sowing & cultivation: Swiss chard is a prolific grower with a long cropping season, it tolerates partial shade, poor soil and inattention. Sow outdoors from May after the last frosts have occurred about 3 cm deep and about 30 cm apart. The harvest starts from June by cutting off the outer stems without hurting the heart.
