3 seedlings, each in a 4" pot
Days to Maturity: 45-60 days
Soil: Fertile soil that drains well
Sun & Water: Full sun (some shade is OK) and regular watering
Pests & Diseases: Slugs love chard leaves. Also keep an eye out for leaf spots and damping off disease, which can occur in high humidity.
HOW TO GROW
Transplanting: Dig a hole the size of the travel pot. Remove the plant from the travel pot and gently loosen the root ball. Place the plant in the hole and cover with soil. Avoid getting soil on the crown of the plant.
Spacing: Plant your seedlings 12-16" apart (space them even farther apart to grow bigger leaves)
Harvest leaves at any stage by twisting them off the stem or using a paring knife. Continuous harvests lead to new growth.

Here's what to expect
This purchase includes 3 individual seedlings, each in its own 4" travel pot. When they arrive, unpack them, stand them up, and lightly touch the top of the soil to check the moisture level. Water until the soil is moist but not drenched.
For the first 2 days, let the seedlings acclimate to the sun and fresh air in their travel pots outdoors. Give them 4-6 hours of sunlight and then place them in the shade for the remainder of the day. Check in on your seedlings every day to make sure their soil remains moist. Follow the transplanting instructions above when your seedling is ready for its new home.
