Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
    Growing Instructions:

    Sow Beet seeds directly into the garden when the soil is warm and all danger of frost is past. Space seeds and plant to the depth indicated below. Press seeds into the soil to ensure good contact. After planting, water seeds with a gentle mist or shower. It is critical to keep the soil consistently moist during germination. When your seedlings reach a height of a few centimeters (inches) and have developed 2 or 3 pairs of leaves, it is important to thin them out, according to the plant spacing indicated below. Do not allow the soil to become dry, as young plants have underdeveloped roots and can quickly dehydrate, particularly in windy conditions. Beets grow quickly and more seeds can be succession planted every 2 to 3 weeks until mid July for a continuous supply of Beets.

  • Planting Depth: 1.3 cm (1/2")
  • Plant Spacing: 8 cm (3")
  • Row Spacing: 30 cm (12")
