    How to Grow Chard

    When planting Swiss chard in containers, the pot does not need to be too deep because the root system isn’t deep but you do want to take into account the large leaves You can buy transplants or sow your own seeds. If you sow your own seeds, they can be started quite early outdoors, as they thrive in cooler temps. If you want to get a jump start, start the seedlings indoors and then transplant them outside when temperatures begin to warm.

    Sow the seeds ½ to an inch apart (1-2.5 cm.). Thin the seedlings to 2-3 inches (5-8 cm.) apart. Swiss chard is ready to be picked within 4-6 weeks. Harvest at this time or if you are growing the plant as an ornamental, leave the leaves until they wilt, turn brown or are munched on by insects. At that time, remove the outer leaves. The inner leaves will continue to grow.
