Useful/additional information Sow seeds March to July. Sow seeds thinly, 1cm (½in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart. Thin seedlings to about 2cm (1in) for 'baby beets' or to 5-7cm (2-3in) for larger roots. Use the thinnings in salads.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 1in 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.
