Beetroot seeds

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

I love beetroot! There’s so many different seeds you could try!
Direct sow beetroot seeds outdoors from March to July in a weed free, sunny position in fertile, light, well drained soil. Sow beetroot seeds thinly in shallow drills at a depth of 3cm (1″) and 30cm (12″) apart. Germination will usually take 12 to 24 days. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 10cm (4″) apart.

When growing beetroot, water as necessary to prevent the soil from drying out and keep the plants cool and moist. This will help to avoid plants running to seed. Roots can be lifted at any time from June to October once they have reached 1″ diameter or more. Harvest any remaining crops before the first frosts. Beetroot can be stored until mid spring in boxes of moist sand in a frost free shed or garage.

With its intensely violet-blue flowers veined with a hint of dark red, and finely cut leaves, Geranium ‘Brookside’ is one of the favourites of all the hardy Geraniums. It certainly makes an impact with its bold colour: it is stunning as a single plant in a cottage garden, and even more eye-catching when several plants are grouped together. It is easy to grow in sun or part shade and reliably produces a mass of flowers throughout summer. What’s more, the spreading habit of this Cranesbill means it is even good at keeping the weeds down. It has won the RHS Award of Garden Merit. Height: 60cm(24"). Spread: 45cm (18").
