How to sow and care for Red Swiss Chard
The best time to sow Swiss Chard seeds is about a week after the last spring frost. In order to harvest the entire plant, space the plants 4-5" apart in compost-enriched soil in full sun. Plants should be planted 1/2 inch deep in soil with high organic content. Plant seeds every two weeks for the continuous harvest of the outer stalks. Seeds should germinate within a week. Swiss chard can withstand mild frosts so you can plant it in the fall as well.
Maintaining the soil's moisture and weed-free with a layer of mulch is very important. Seedlings are particularly vulnerable to dehydration at the beginning of their growth. You can harvest greens as soon as the leaves reach a height of 6-8". The whole plant can be harvested at the soil surface but leave an inch of stem to ensure continued growth. It is also possible to reap the outer stalks, leaving the inner ones to grow.
