General Beetroot Growing Tips

Beetroot is an easy crop to grow. The roots are best picked when young and cooked fresh. Pickling is another option. If roots are stored in winter you can have beetroot almost all year round.

  • Sow Beetroot from early march under cloches, or if sowing in the open from mid-April to July for a regular supply of tasty roots. Sowings made from June onwards can be also be used for storing for winter use.
  • Alternatively, sow into large cell trays and plant out when ready.
  • If sowing direct in the ground, sow approx 2cm deep with a 10cm spacing in the rows, the rows should be around 30cm apart.
  • Dry soil will lead to woody roots, so water well and make sure the soil is always moist.
  • Protect early seedlings with fleece if a cold spell is forecast. Young beetroot plants are sensitive to cold and could bolt to seed early. There are bolt resistant varieties available and these should be your first choice for early sowings.
  • Feed every other week.
  • Do not let the beetroot get too big as this will reduce taste and quality.

This makes a fantastic beetroot to eat raw in salads. If you slice it thinly or grate it, it adds a great colour to them. Not so great cooked as you lose all those great colours though, but still tastes like beetroot.
