Perpetual Spinach Chard VCH-3140



Smooth green leaves,

small stems-can be hard to tell from true spinach in looks or taste.

Frost and bolt resistant, needs water after a dry spell.

Popular in Europe, hard to find in the US. Perennial in zones 6 and above, or zone 5 if winter drainage is excellent.

BOTANICAL NAME: Beta vulgaris


May be started in flats or pots, but chard is taprooted, so transplant promptly or direct-sow. Thrives in any good garden soil. Will overwinter in zones 7 and above, so plan a separate place out of the normal garden rotation if you intend a more permanent planting. Prepare bed well and add compost. In 2 months, or when plants are 12-18" all, begin gently pulling off the outer leaves and new leaves will form, or cut plant 2" from soil and new will regrow.

 I planted Perpetual Spinach Chard from Bountiful Gardens last year, and it was wonderful. We had chard all season long, well after the first frost. It just keeps coming back! We started cutting a whole bunch down at a time, and each grew back within a week or two. This green stands up well to cooking but also is tender enough to use like spinach in a raw salad. Im ordering again for this year!
