Sowing
Sow seeds March to July. Sow seeds thinly, 1cm (1/2") deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart. Prefers well drained, moist, rich soil.

Thin seedlings to 5cm (2in) apart for 'baby beets' when large enough to handle, or 7cm (3in) for larger, heavier cylindrical roots.

More Info

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.
