Have you ever tried beetroot in a salad? I remember the first time a friend gave me a salad with beetroot, and it changed my life. Now imagine that salad with home-grown beetroot. How much better is life now?

We know you can grow this beautiful beetroot. We believe in you.

We've carefully chosen a variety called Boltardy which is:

  • Very easy to grow
  • Grows well in containers
  • Very popular and reliable
  • Tolerant to some shade

And the taste, of course, we haven't forgotten about that. Your Botlhardy Beetroot has a deep red colour covered in a smooth skin. It's got a fresh, sweet flavour you won't forget, and those young shoots are deliciously sweet.

These can be planted until 7 - July.

The sooner you plant the seeds, the sooner they'll grow. Don't regret not planting them today.

🌿 How to grow Beetroot from seed 

  • You can sow beetroot directly outdoors between March and July  
  • Use weed-free, fertile, well-drained soil and place them in a sunny place 
  • Sow the seeds thinly in drills around 1cm deep and 30cm apart 
  • The shoots should come through between 12-24 days 
  • When the shoots are large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings with each row 5-7cm apart 
  • Keep the soil moist to keep it growing
