I planted seeds a few weeks ago and nothing much has come up yest. Im I too late to try planting some more?
Everything of mine is late
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.
Bumping so it rises above the spam.
Spam and chard fritter anyone?
