|Species:||Beta vulgaris ssp. vulgaris var. vulgaris|
- Main article: Beetroot
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.
July-October. Twist the tops off the roots rather than cutting them to prevent 'bleeding'.
