Packet of Beetroot Boltardy SeedsBeetroot Boltardy is the most popular choice for early and maincrop sowings with home gardeners, thanks to its reliable and consistent performance in a variety of growing conditions. With a sweet and earthy flavour, Boltardy beets are perfect for roasting, pickling, or adding a pop of colour to salads.

One of the key benefits of Boltardy beetroot is its resistance to bolting, a common problem in beetroot that can cause the plants to run to seed. With Boltardy, you can be confident that your beets will develop into full-sized, tender roots with a rich, deep red colour.

Boltardy can be used for the bulk of your beetroot cropping before switching to a late variety to finish the season. Sow little and often and you will be picking the roots over several months from June onwards.

Another great feature of Boltardy beetroot seeds is their versatility. Whether you're growing in a small container garden or a large field, Boltardy is a good choice to use. Plus, these seeds are easy to germinate and grow, making them a great choice for gardeners of all experience levels.

If you're looking for a delicious and reliable variety of beetroot to add to your veg garden this year, definitely consider Boltardy. With its exceptional flavour, resistance to bolting, and easy-growing nature, it's a winning choice for any grower.

General Beetroot Growing Tips

Beetroot Boltardy is an easy crop to grow from seeds and ideal for beginners and experienced growers a like. 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 the beetroot seeds 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 you can sow Boltardy 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 beetroot get too big as this will reduce taste and quality.

I tried different beetroots this year, from different sources - but both varieties that I tried from this website were great! No bolting, all seeds produced nice roots and lovely leaves, which we ate too. Will definitely grow them next year.

I have tried all sorts of beetroot, but still think this is the best, I am waiting for the weather to settle down so that I can see how they have stood over winter. I will let you know how they fare.
