Chard Bright Lights has eye catching brightly coloured stems. It is a prolific grower with a long cropping season and is regarded as a cool weather vegetable which will withstand all but the hardest frosts.
Chard is a good choice for those beginners as it is more or less trouble free crop, and can easily be grown in borders or patio containers.
Very popular in salad leaf mixes that you buy from the supermarkets, chard can be grown for cut and come again harvesting for babyleaf use in salads. The plants can also be grown on and the stems can be stripped and cooked (best when young and tender), whilst the larger leaves which are packed with full nutrition can be cooked like spinach.
This is a mixed pack of a range of colours. You'll need only one or two sowings for growing all year, as this stunning variety is very slow to bolt.
