Plenty of time to sow more seed.  just rake it over and start again.

I sow chard at intervals from spring to late summer./early autumn - the last sowing stands through the winter to give an early crop in the spring.  We had a fantastic crop this spring 

Oh thats helpful, thank you, i wonder why it wasn't sucessful? Thanks for advice

Where did you sow them?  I sow mine direct into the garden, give them a watering and stand well back - germination within a fortnight usually.

My favourite variety for flavour and reliability at the moment is Lucullus http://www.thompson-morgan.com/vegetables/vegetable-seeds/beetroot-and-chard-seeds/leaf-beet-lucullus/593TM .

 I'm also getting good cropping from the Ruby chard.  I did find that the multi-coloured ones didn't stand so well over winter.

Good luck
