T&M's easy starter plants are delivered ready for planting at the correct time so that you can enjoy bigger, earlier and tastier vegetables. Gradually acclimatise beetroot plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to planting outdoors.


Grow beetroots in light, rich fertile, well drained soil in a sheltered position in full sun. Prepare the soil in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted farmyard manure to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Space beetroots at a distance of 10cm (4") apart, and water thoroughly after planting. Cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects.

When growing beetroot, it is only necessary to water occasionally to prevent the soil from drying out. Hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing. Beetroot appreciate an application of a high nitrogen fertiliser every two weeks during the growing season. Beetroot may be harvested at any stage during the summer depending on the size and maturity of root required. Lift any remaining crop before the first autumn frosts and store in a frost free location. Culinary note: Cooked beetroot may be eaten cold in salads or as a hot vegetable.

  1. King (queen?) of beets

    By Delphine Lettau 21-09-2016

    These took perfectly from plugs and have been wonderful from baby to full size. They cook from freshly picked in roughly 10.12 minutes and are perfectly tender and sweet.
