A nutritious and versatile vegetable, also well suited to the decorative border. From a packet of seed and an April sowing the seedlings of Chard ‘Bright Lights’ have grown and matured in the borders of the edible garden. The deep red leaf base from midrib outwards is worthy of planting in a potager where the combination of vegetables and flowers make for adventurous combinations. While in the demonstration garden take a while to appreciate the apprentice’s potager. Felix and George have both produced stunning designs this year; one bold, one subtle and restful.
