How to grow:
Direct sow rainbow Swiss chard seeds for planting about a week after the last spring frost, planting it 1/2″ deep in compost-enriched soil in full sun. For harvesting the entire plant, space the plants 4-5″ apart; for continual harvesting of the outer stalks, space the plants 8-10″ apart for larger growth. For a continuous summer crop, plant more Swiss chard every two weeks. Keep the soil evenly moist and weed-free with a layer of mulch. Moisture is especially crucial to the seedlings in the first stages of their growth. Germination should occur in about a week. Swiss chard can survive light frosts and can be planted as a fall crop.
