Planting Beetroot Seeds - Beta vulgaris

Posted Apr 25 2009 11:00pm

Beetroot, also known as Red Beet (latin name - Beta vulgaris) was planted today:

    * variety - Boltardy
    * rows 30cm apart (wide enough to get the hoe down)
    * depth 2cm
    * seeds 2cm apart in the row

The seedbed was dry because it had been covered to keep the rain off.

The corky beetroot ’seed’ in the packet is really a fruit containing several seeds. So they will need thinning, even though the ’seeds’ have been carefully spaced.

The beetroot seeds were then gently watered in to tighten the soil in the row.
