How to grow beetroot in your garden

  • Beetroot is an easy vegetable to grow. Hardy, durable and not particularly fussy, beetroot is ideal for both first-time and experienced gardeners.
  • It is a fairly easy crop to grow as long as the soil is well cultivated prior to planting. They don’t enjoy wet, boggy or shady soils.
  • Plant in full sun with space seedlings of 10-15 cm apart and rows 20 cm-30 cm apart so they have room to grow during transplanting.
  • Water plants thoroughly before planting and allow them to drain.
  • Dig a hole, approximately twice the depth and width of the root ball of your plant.
  • Gently loosen the root ball of your plant and position the plant in the centre of the hole.
  • Press soil gently around the base of the plant.
  • Water your plant well.
  • Beetroot needs phosphorus to develop, if there is too much nitrogen there will be plenty of foliage but not a lot of root development.
  • Well watered, well-nourished beetroot will have a better chance of keeping insect pests and diseases at bay.
  • Regularly apply a dose of tonic to give them a welcome boost.
  • Harvest when the beetroot is the size you like to eat.
  • Dig them gently out of the soil, harvesting at separate intervals down the rows to allow smaller beets to develop.
