Growing Rainbow Swiss Chard In The Winter Dome

In this post, I share my all-season Rainbow Swiss Chard plants growing in my home garden.  Check out the quick video and a few creative images from Autumn – Winter.

All Season Rainbow Swiss Chard

Why do I call the rainbow swiss chard an all-season plant? In my hardiness zone 5b /6 Ohio the plant will not survive the entire winter outdoors.  I dig up the HUGE root of the plants and replant in my dome garden.  In the dome, the plant will not go below 40*F and can continue growing.

Here are a few reasons I LOVE Rainbow Swiss Chard:

  • The swiss chard plant survives hard frost in my landscape
  • Colorful leaves respond to even cold days with vibrant color
  • Harvest new growth for a nutritious addition to your meal
  • Fun to take photos of to share on social media

Rainbow Swiss Chard Moved To Dome Video

In the video featured on this page, I show how easy it is to dig up the roots of the swiss chard to move to my dome where I can continue to enjoy during the winter.  Come spring I need to try and grow this container out in the landscape to see how long I can keep this plant going.  Stay tuned by subscribing to my Newsletter featured on my site.
