  • Rhubarb Chard (Autumn)

    £4.99
    (10 Plants)

    Colourful, nutrient-rich and delicious

    This is a leaf beet chard that will add a nice splash of colour to the garden over winter. It’s a nice one to grow in borders and pots as well. Treat it as spinach or pick the leaves while they are young for salads. It will do particularly well grown under cover during the autumn/winter months if you can plant it in a greenhouse.

    Number of plants: 10

    Variety: Rhubarb Red (organic*)

    In the kitchen: The leaves are lovely wilted with a bit of garlic butter, and the stalks are great chopped up and thrown into paellas and risottos.

    Delivery Info: Available to order now for delivery between late August and Mid/Late October.

    Planting/Growing Advice: Plant in early autumn approx 30cm apart in raised beds, traditional veg patches or in pots and planters. They will grow quite quickly while the weather is relatively warm in autumn, and then will slow down in the colder months. They are frost tolerant. They will grow even faster if grown under cover in a greenhouse/polytunnel or under horticultural fleece/cloche.

    When to harvest: Start picking the outer leaves as the plant reaches approx 20-25cm high. Leave a few baby leaves in the centre of the plant hen harvesting and it will keep producing leaves for several months.
