Swiss Chard does not transplant well and does best if the seeds are planted
directly in the soil. Swiss Chard will better tolerate heat if plants are well
thinned and air can circulate around them. Plant your seeds outdoors. Spring
planting should occur as soon as soil can be worked. Maintain constant
moisture level throughout the year for best results. Swiss Chard is resistant
to frost, and can be harvested well after first frost. Many successive harvest
can be made from one planting. Cut back plants in late summer to rejuvenate
them for fall production. Plants grow 6 - 20" tall.
