Beetroot Monika is a monogerm variety, which means it’s a great choice as there’s no need to thin your beetroot crop anymore once sown. Sow each seed 5-10cm apart and pick alternate plants when young for tender baby beets, leaving the rest to mature into a beetroot bonanza. Delicious and tasty beetroot perfect for boiling or roasting.

- How to Sow
Sow seeds thinly, about 2cm (1in) apart in pre-watered, shallow rows, and cover with a little soil. Allow about 30cm (12in) between rows.
As seedlings develop, thin them to about 10cm (4in) apart. Keep soil moist at all times to prevent roots becoming dry and woody.
To produce baby beet, grow at approx. 5cm (2in) apart.
