PLANTING TIME: Sow seeds directly in the garden from May to the beginning of July, mid-June for a full harvest. The beets will have a better taste when they grow quickly and steadily.
SOIL: Light and slightly sandy soil with a pH of 6.0 or higher. Should be free of stones and clumps to allow the proper development of the root system. Work the soil thoroughly with compost or manure.
SPACING: Sow 1 cm deep. Clear plants 8 cm apart on rows spaced at least 30-40 cm apart.
GROWING TIPS: Heavy rains after a long period of dry weather will result in poor root colour. These drought periods will also cause tough or woody roots. Keep the beets well watered. A full sun exposure is ideal.
HARVEST: Beets are tender as soon as they reach half their size, but harden when larger. When the plants are young the leaves make delicious greens.
