What to do on arrival
On arrival open the packages immediately. You may notice a little compost spillage due to movement in the post, and occasionally an odd yellow leaf may appear and fall off due to the plants being in a box for a short period, but this is nothing to worry about. If there is any significant damage please contact us immediately. Stand the plants upright and give a little water as required. After a couple of hours the plants will have recovered from the journey and will be ok to plant as directed below.
Always prepare your soil well prior to planting by adding a general fertiliser and rake well into the soil. If growing in containers, plant into a good quality potting compost and feed throughout the growing season to keep plants healthy and producing a tasty crop over a longer period.
July to October
10cm (4") between plants in rows spaced 30cm (12") apart.
Plant as multisown for smaller beetroots. Gradually thin to a single beetroot per station as roots become large enough to eat once they reach 5cm (2.5") in diameter. Leave remaining roots to get larger for harvesting later as required. Plant into well prepared soil in a sunny position and water well. The smaller the roots the sweeter the flavour.
