Swiss Chard

Swiss chard is an easy-to-grow spinach-like green with a remarkable tolerance to both heat and cold. Tremendously productive, it is a significant source of Vitamin A, potassium and iron. Growing Tips: Follow planting instructions for beets, sowing in early spring. A weekly watering with a liquid fish fertilizer, such as 5-1-1 is beneficial for encouraging rich, deeply coloured greens.
