Beetroot Seeds - Solo F1 Hybrid | 400 seeds per packet
Beetroot Solo is a monogerm seed producing only one seedling per seed cluster, so thinning is unnecessary. This fast maturing variety produces a crop of high quality, medium-sized beets which can be pulled young as baby beets or left to mature. Beetroot Solo is a top tasting Monogerm Variety.
SOW OUTDOORS - March-August, thinly, direct into the required harvest position, 1in (2Â½cm) deep in rows 12in (30cm) apart. Keep soil moist at all times.
GROW ON - If necessary thin seedlings to 4in (10cm) apart. For baby beets, thin to 2in (5cm).
TIP - Use thinnings as baby leaf. Use fleece to protect crop from frost or cold wind. Twist off the tops to prevent "bleeding".
Before sowing we recommend making a nice, rich soil by adding plenty of organic matter in Winter. Place horticultural fleece over the surface to warm the soil for early sowing.
