Our most popular beetroot, and no wonder! Boltardy can be sown early in the year right through to mid summer for successional crops, and is slow to run to seed. It yields perfect, globe shaped beets of superb flavour and colour, and its flesh is usually free of unsightly ‘rings’.

Sowing Outdoors

  • Sow seeds thinly, about 2cm (1in) apart in pre-watered shallow rows, and cover with a little soil
  • Allow about 30cm (12in) between rows

 

Thinning

  • As seedlings develop, thin them to about 10cm (4in) apart
  • Keep soil moist at all times to prevent roots becoming dry and woody

Growing Tips

  • Supplied as multigerm seeds, several plants in one seed
  • Use thinnings as baby leaf salad
  • When harvesting beet, twist the tops off the roots rather than cutting them to prevent bleeding
