Grow Notes
Plant seeds in moist well drained soils during Spring, Summer and Autumn. Avoid planting in extremely hot or cold weather which can affect germination and growth. Grown in full sun.

Young seedlings will need protection from pests, pets and weather until they are established.

Sow
Sow direct at 15mm depth. Space plants at 10cm with 50cm rows. Beetroot seeds are clustered together with each cork-like fruit containing two or three seeds.

Keep soil moist but never wet or dry.

Once germinated, thin out early to avoid root disturbance. Use the first thinning as salad leaf, the next as baby beets then let the rest mature on.

Germination
5-10 days at 10-30°C

Maturity
