Growing Silverbeet, also Swiss Chard or Mangold

View the Silverbeet page

03 Jul 09 Marie (United Kingdom - cool/temperate climate)
I am growing silverbeet in pots sitting inside a larger pot with soil in the bottom. It is growing well but some of the leaves get a grey colourd blotch on them. I only ever water from below. Any suggestions? Over the last couple of weeks our temperature has been between 20 and 27°. I never had any problems when I lived in Australia. Maybe I am being too ambitious?
