Swiss Chard Fordhook Giant
Very tasty with large dark green, savoyed leaves and a broad white rib. A good alternative to spinach with the advantage that the leaves retain their volume when cooked. Very easy to grow - leaving the row to its own devices will still yield a large crop.
Sow seeds in spring for a summer/autumn crop or mid to late summer for an autumn/spring crop. Sow seeds very thinly in ordinary garden soil in drills 1m inch deep, in rows about 12 inches apart. Thin out to 9 inches apart. The thinnings can be trimmed and cooked.
