Type: HHB

Hardy in: zones 8-9-10 (0 Celsius)

Sowing instructions: Should be sown when the danger of hard frost has passed. In order to avoid glut, plant in small batches up until mid-July. If you want beetroot crops three or four weeks earlier, use a small poly-tunnel or cloche. Before sowing, soak the seeds in water for an hour or so. Only soak enough seeds necessary for immediate planting. Wwhere more than one line is to be planted, space each line about 30cm apart. Space the seeds in the lines 5cm apart and cover with soil. Water if the soil is dry.

Planting instructions: Beetroot will definitely appreciate a thorough watering if the conditions become dry. This will encourage them to grow quickly and the roots will be more tender and tasty. Luckily enough, little weeding should be required because the foliage of beetroot is dense enough to keep most weeds at bay
