The Rhubarb Chard plants need plenty of sunshine and a moisture-retentive soil, ideal for growing in raised beds or pots.
When planting allow approx. 15cm space but please check the instructions supplied for more detailed planting instructions.
The chard is really low-maintenance, so you can't go too wrong. Make sure you water well, particularly during dry spells and try to water early morning or evening to avoid leaves getting scorched.
Try and weed regularly to give the plants the best chance. If your plants wilt suddenly, it's a sign of pests in the roots - best to dig them up carefully so other plants don't get infected. Also keep an eye out for slugs and snails which are partial to the leaves.
Smaller leaves can be used for salads or let the stems grow and use them in stir fries.
