One of the best known and most popular varieties available, Beetroot 'Boltardy' produces good yields of deep red,
globe shaped roots with a superb sweet flavour and tender, ring free flesh.
This RHS AGM variety is bolt-resistant making it ideal for early sowings.
|Flowers in||June to October|
|Ideal for||Patio Vegetables|
|Additional Seed Information|
|Sowing/Planting Instructions||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.|
|Growing Instructions||Thin seedlings as necessary, to 2.5cm apart for 'baby beets' or slightly wider spacing for larger roots. Keep well watered for most tender roots and to avoid bolting (running to seed). Both the roots and the leaves are edible, raw or steamed when young.|
