2. Plant chard seeds two to three weeks before the last frost in the spring.
The chard will thrive in cool temperatures. Depending on what area you live in, you’ll need to find out when frosts occur. Sometimes frosts occur without you knowing it, especially if you don’t keep up with the weather.
It is important to stay in tune with the weather when you become a gardener. You’ll need to know when is a good time to plant and not a good time to plant. You’ll just need to check on them often to be sure that they are germinating.
To increase your harvest, plant seeds every 10 days for a month. Make sure you space them out each time you plant them, so that they don’t grow on top of one another. When they grow on top of one another, they don’t have a crisp taste and some are no good to eat.
