Growing Directions:

Bright Lights Swiss Chard is a plant that needs plenty of space, sunlight, and water to thrive. Be sure to keep around 18-24 inches between each row and plant when sowing seeds. They also need an area with full sun, and to be watered consistently throughout their growth period. The soil they are planted in should be sandy and rich; using a compost in it is an excellent idea, as long as any major clumps have been broken up. The soil should ideally have a pH between 6 and 6.4, but what is most important is that it is rich and moist while being well drained. Sow seeds in the spring just before the final frost of the season. These plants have some tolerance to the cold, but not too much. Sow them as soon as the soil can be worked by covering each one with about a quarter inch of soil. The swiss chard plants will grow to be beautiful and strong. After around 60 days, the leaves should be ready for harvest. Harvest them individually, or as an entire head. Keep the roots and the base of the Bright Lights Swiss chard plants intact so that they can continue to grow.


Swiss chard leaves are dense in nutrients and deliciously fresh and flavorful. The bright lights swiss chards are colorful and exciting as an addition to the garden and the kitchen table.
