My Gardening Fact Sheets

What I have learnt about: Beetroot

Always directly sow your beetroot seeds where they'll grow.

Beetroot can be grown in either full sun or partial shade.

The soil should have a little lime added to it.

Thin out the seedlings leaving an inch between them.

As the seedlings grow bigger thin out so that they are about 2 inches apart.

Beetroot is usually ready in around 3 or 4 months.

Lift it from the ground, being careful not to damage the root, and twist off the leaves.
