While nothing in the garden is forever, this large and showy ‘Silverbeet’ almost is.
Growing to very large sizes, the leaves are a brilliant vegetable and the plant just can’t stop producing.
Unlike most of the chard family, the taste does not diminish with age.
Cut down to the base when it starts looking ‘raggy’, it will reshoot year after year.
While it does seed easily, there is no need to let it do so every year.
Loves to drain, so mulch it up as the base will rot if it is allowed to sit in ‘bog’.
