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.
