How to Save Seeds

Chard will cross pollinate with other chard varieties as well as beet varieties. So with that in mind I would suggest only growing one kind of beet or chard since they require a distance of at least ¾ of a mile. Beets are biennial meaning they must be overwintered in order to produce seed the next year. Some gardeners pull the beets trim the leaves back to 2 inches over the bulb and overwinter them in a root cellar in either damp sawdust or sand. Some gardeners that enjoy warmer winters mulch them and hope they survive the winter temps. Once spring arrives replant them and wait for the seed. Once seed is dry collect and store.
