Description: Rainbow Chard is a super colourful mix of chard with the stems ranging in colour from yellow to red to pink and some striped mixes of in-between colours, many are almost neon, they are so bright! Rainbow chard is popular all around the world but it is a heritage line that came originally from the Nelson area of New Zealand. These plants go to seed around the Summer Solstice so good time to plant is late Dec/Jan and they will last a whole year in the ground.
Planting Instructions: Plant into trays Spring and Autumn. Prick out when first two leaves appear to 2.5cm diagonal spacing. Transplant when 6-8cm tall to 30cm diagonal spacing.
