Common Name Beetroot
Soil Type Sandy, Neutral
Scent Unscented
Site Full Sun, Part Shade
Moisture Well-drained, Moist but Well-drained
Height 30cm (12in)
Spacing Thin to 10cm between plants.
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Soak seed in warm water for half an hour before sowing. Direct sow every 3-4 weeks from early March to July. Sow thinly, 5cm apart in rows 30cm apart.
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.
Harvesting June-October - store them overwinter. From spring sown seed, these take about 8-10 weeks from grow. Harvest earlier for small golf ball size beetroot. To harvest, pull alternate plants down the row, in effect thinning, to leave room for remaining beetroot to develop. Remaining roots will enlarge and store for winter.
Cooking Notes Cut the tops off before cooking, as this helps to lock in the nutrients. Cook whole, and then peel the skin to maintain the colour. Tops can be eaten at 5-8cm tall in salads - they are delicious.

Reviewed 22nd July 2016 by Deborah Mitchell

I bought some golden beetroot and stripey beetroot on holiday in France. Why our supermarkets don't stock these is a mystery?! Found these seedlings here and have been delighted with the results. All grew very well and are delicious! I peel, slice and eat raw in salads. Or roast or even juice! Only problem is my garden isn't bigger so I can grow more. Would definitely recommend!
