Chard - Fireworks (Five Colours)
Beta vulgaris - approximately 200 seeds.
'Fireworks' chard is a lovely mix of red, pink, orange, yellow and white coloured stems which maintain their lovely colour after cooking. Great for salads and stir-fries. Known to be easy to grow in all types of soil.
For an early crop, sow into containers in February/March undercover and transplant as the soil starts to warm in April/May. Alternatively, sow in modules or directly in the soil from April/May. Sow direct or into modules from July to September for an overwinter/early spring harvest in a tunnel or under a cloche.
TIP: Chard is great for cut and come again harvesting. We like to harvest the larger outside leaves from several plants at once whilst leaving the smaller leaves ones to grow.
All seeds are posted via Royal Mail 1st Class at a flat rate of £3.00. Please note, due to legislation covering inspection and sale of seeds, we can only post to Scotland, England and Wales.
