Beetroot

Posted May 11 2013 4:42pm

One row of beetroot was sown in the Plot this morning.

The seeds were sown:

  • in a shallow row
  • 1cm deep
  • 15cm apart

The seeds were covered lightly with soil and watered in.

The variety of beetroot was Bulls Blood, a heritage variety introduced in 1840 which has:

  • vivid burgundy leaves
  • baby leaves which add colour to salads
  • fat round purple beetroots

Bulls Blood beetroot seeds are available from the Telegraph Garden Shop .

Planting beetroot now will ensure a supply of beet for summer salads
