How to plant:

Get your soil ready now by digging over and raking the area. At planting time space your young plants around 15-20cm (6-8in) apart. Plant them in a multi-purpose compost and treat to a feed of Growmore as you notice the young plants start to develop in earnest.

Water your plants well; twice to three times a day if it a warm September and October. Cut the leaves at harvest time when the leaves are around 30-40cm (12-16in) high and we recommend you steam them. They are perfect like this.

Useful tip:

Keep on top of weeding around your Swiss Chard Bright Lights plants as they develop over the autumn so your plants need not compete with water, space and nutrients. Use a hand hoe in containers or larger hoe if growing garlic directly in the beds.
