Beetroot 'Solo' F1 Hybrid

Beta vulgaris

Hardy Annual

This British bred monogerm variety produces only one seedling per seed cluster, reducing the need for thinning out.

This RHS AGM variety has good resistance to bolting, leaf spot, downy and powdery mildew. Height: 30cm (12”). Spread: 15cm (6”).

Ideal For:
kitchen garden

Direct sow beetroot seeds outdoors from March to July in a weed free, sunny position in fertile, light, well drained soil. Sow beetroot seeds thinly in shallow drills at a depth of 3cm (1") and 30cm (12") apart. Germination will usually take 12 to 24 days. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 10cm (4") apart.

When growing beetroot, water as necessary to prevent the soil from drying out and keep the plants cool and moist. This will help to avoid plants running to seed. Roots can be lifted at any time from June to October once they have reached 1" diameter or more. Harvest any remaining crops before the first frosts. Beetroot can be stored until mid spring in boxes of moist sand in a frost free shed or garage.
