Swiss Chard (2-Pack)
Edible plants that look as great as they taste? Yes, please! Bright Lights Swiss Chard produces large leaves with cheerful yellow, red, cream, or magenta flat, wide mid-ribs, adding a bright burst of color to garden beds or containers. The upright rosette form makes an attractive edible “thriller” to combine with violas and lettuce for a pretty spring or fall container planting. With a taste similar to spinach, this highly nutritious veggie prefers full sun but tolerates partial shade, especially in hot climates. You’ll love the versatility of this plant—harvest a few outer leaves as you need them, and let it continue growing for future meals. A member of the beet family, harvested Swiss chard freezes well, too. Frost tolerant.Read More

Welcome your Plant
1. Remove Packaging
Take each individual bonnie plant out of the box before carefully opening each individual plant’s packaging. Be cautious of soil that may have shifted during transportation.
2. Check the Soil
Your plants were watered right before shipping, but they may have become thirsty during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a good drink before planting.
3. Adjustment Period
Let your plants get used to their new environment. Set them in a warm, sunny spot for 34 to 48 hours so they can recover from their trip before being planted.
Long term Care
1. Location, location
Find the right spot for your plant. Check each plant’s tag for information on how much sun your plan’s need. Growing tip: if your plant needs full sun, a south-facing area will give you the most sunlight. If your plan can grow in part shade, an east or west-facing window might be enough.
2. Soil & drainage
Making sure your container has holes to allow excess water to drain is vital to your plant’s health! We recommend planting your Bonnie Plant in Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for containers, or Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for planting in ground.
3. Hungry plants
Feeding your plants is one of the best ways to improve your plant’s health and maximize your harvest. We recommend feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food when you transplant, and feeding regularly following label directions for best results.
