Beetroot Seeds - Golden
HOW TO GROW FROM SEEDS
Choose a site for planting that is sunny with light, well-draining soil amended with organic matter. Beets like soil with a pH of between 6.5 to 7. Work a fertilizer containing both nitrogen and phosphorus prior to planting. Rake out any large rocks or clods since they affect the growth of the beetroot. Make sure the soil temps for beet germination are between 50-86 F. Sow the seeds thinly, 1-2 inches apart at a depth of half-inch 1.25 cm. in rows a foot apart. Cover the seeds lightly with soil and sprinkle with water. Like Boltardy Beetroots Sow seeds from mid-March to July, or under glass in January to February to crop May onwards.
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF THE SMALL GOLDEN BEET
When the seedlings are 1 to 2 inches tall, thinning should commence. Remove the smallest and weakest looking plants by cutting, not pulling because it may disturb the roots of the neighboring seedlings. Thinning is important to allow the developing plant room to grow. Also, beet seeds are not actually a single seed. It is a cluster of seeds in dried fruit, so it is very likely that multiple seedlings will come up from a single seed. When caring for golden beet plants, keep the plants moist. Water deeply and don’t let the soil dry out. A 1 to 2 inches layer of mulch around established plants will aid with this. Keep the area weed-free and spray the plants once or twice with foliar, seaweed-based fertilizer. Fertilize mid growing season with a well-balanced organic fertilizer.
