Genus Beta vulgaris
Type Hardy Annual
Common Name Beetroot
Soil Type Neutral, Sandy
Scent Unscented
Site Full Sun, Part Shade
Moisture Moist but Well-drained, 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.

I planted them according to directions and watered them regularly but they ended up looking like shriveled carrots

This year has been my best ever for lovely beetroot. Took the advice given about growing in an area not planted with brassicas for 4 years and perfect results. Definately on the list for next year.

Bought these seedlings this year as I've been hopeless at growing them from seed! Loved the different colours but the ones that did really well were the Bolthardy and we've had such lovely beetroot this year. The other two didn't do as well as the Bolthardy but will persevere and try again next year!

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!
