Growing Swiss Chard: Swiss chard grows best in rich well composted moist soil with a PH between 6.0 and 6.8. Chard prefers full sun early in the season, part shade in summer when it’s warm and requires well-drained soil. Plant seeds half an inch deep and 3 inches apart. Set out seedlings 12 inches apart.

Care of Swiss Chard:

  • Water the plants evenly to help them grow better. Water often during dry spells in the summer. Mulching the plants to help conserve moisture.
  • Cut the plants back when they are about 1 foot tall. If the chard plants become overgrown, they lose their flavor.
  • Swiss Chard can be picked as soon as the leaves are large enough to harvest, usually in four to six weeks.
  • Chard is a cool weather vegetable and may withstand a very mild frost.

Constant weeding is ultra-important around your Swiss Chard plants as they develop. Use a hand hoe in containers or larger hoe if growing garlic directly in the beds.
