Description

A favourite sweet variety, which has provided me with the bulk of my beetroot and baby salad leaves for years. It is bolt resistant, so you can sow it from early in the season until late. Highly recommended.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Don't water unless soil is very parched, over-watering encourages leaf at the expense of root. Fantastic planted with chamomile, onions and lettuce.
