Beetroot Seeds

Beetroot is a traditional English root vegetable and a proven superfood! Its roots are rich in potassium and folate, and also contain vitamin C, and the young leaves are packed with beta carotene, calcium and iron. Beetroot plants crop 12-16 weeks after sowing, and F1 hybrids last longer in good condition than ordinary types. Top Tip: Twist the leaves to remove them – cutting encourages ‘bleeding’ of the messy sap inside.

How To Grow Beetroot From Seed?

How deep to plant beetroot seeds?

Beetroot seeds should be sown into the soil at a depth of 13mm. They will germinate within 10 to 14 days and will reach maturity in 12 to 16 weeks.

It’s important to keep the soil moist in the early stages of growth and during dry weather once they are up and running. Pick over any dead leaves as they grow. When Beetroot becomes swollen on the soil surface harvest beetroot by gently pulling when the soil is moist. Beetroots are bountiful and can be multiply sown through a season, think about pickling them for a constant supply throughout the year.
