How to Guide

Sow outdoors

March-July: Sow direct into the required harvest position, 2.5cm (1 in) deep. Keep soil moist at all times to prevent roots becoming dry and woody.  Thin out to 10cm (4in) , or 5cm (2in) for baby beets.

 

Tips

Bolt-resistant varieties can be sown early, as soon as the soil begins to warm up, or under cloches. Use thinnings in baby leaf salads. Use fleece to protect crop from frost or cold wind. Twist off the tops to prevent “bleeding”. Beetroot can be lifted and stored in sand; ensure they are kept frost-free.
