I planted silverbeat 6 weeks ago in potting mix. Just doesn't seem to be growing at all. Its in a vege bin and part sun /shade.

Potting mix may not have enough nitrogen and water holding capacity for silverbeet. Cow manure and compost may be better. A side application of manure may encourage some growth.
