Swiss Chard Seeds 'White Silver'

Price for Package of 100 or 1600 seeds.

Chard 'White Silver' has the best flavour of any chard and looks wonderful with its chunky white-stems. A hugely long producing and worthwhile plant. Chard is one of my desert island veg because you can pick it for months on end and there are so many fantastic ways to cook it . Make sure to strip the white from the green, as they have different cooking times.
For a delicious, nutritious and quick recipe for chard, try out a simple Chard and Coconut Soup for a family dinner.
Companion Plants: Celery, cucumbers, dill, garlic, hyssop, lettuce, mint, nasturtium, onions, potatoes, rosemary, sage, spinach, 
 
Name & Variety Chard 'White Silver' (Beet Leaf, Beta vulgaris subsp. cicla)
Soil Type: Richly manured ground. They like a rich soil, so dig in lots of organic material to planting position.
Site: Full sun or partial shade
Sowing Seed: For a constant supply throughout the year, sow undercover from February - March then direct sow in April - early September. Easy germination.
Spacing: Plant seedlings 60cm apart if in rows. Sow 3-4 seeds in stations 23cm apart - leaving 35cm between the rows.
Hardiness: Hardy
Care tips: Protect with cloches in winter for good quality growth.
Harvesting: The leaves will produce all year in the South or from April to December in the North. Harvest small leaves for salad from 8 weeks after sowing - a brilliant cut-and-come again crop.
Cooking Notes: Separate the white and the green for cooking, the white stems take 2-3 minutes longer (about 8mins) than the green leaves (5mins).
