Chard, Radicchio & Parsley Container Garden

Tags: , , , ,

A riot of edible color, this cool-weather Chard, Radicchio & Parsley Container Garden design features three versatile veggies and herbs alongside cheery petunias. Rainbow-hued chard and rosy radicchio look (and taste) great in salads, soups, and sautés (radicchio’s also superb on the grill), while you may want to whip up some pesto with the parsley — or simply use it in salads or as garnish. We’ve designed this planting pretty intensively, knowing you’ll want to harvest early and often (which will keep plant size in check). Use a whiskey barrel, large metal tub, or other 24-inch (or larger) container with drainage holes.

Plants you’ll need for your Radicchio & Parsley Container Garden

For excellent results, fill the container with premium quality potting mix, such as Miracle-Gro® Potting Mix, which is the ideal weight and texture for container growing. Feed plants regularly with Miracle-Gro® Pour & Feed® Singles to ensure they get all the nutrition they need.
