Growing instructions
Plant seed clusters in april to may 1 inch deep and 1 inch apart with rows 1.5 feet apart in part shade. Germinating time is 2 weeks at 10-20 Celsius. Beets do well in loose, well-worked soil, that is not acidic with some sand and some clay.You can harvest them august to october, so it takes about 60 days for a beet to reach about 1.5 inches in diameter. Tip: Twist leaves off of harvested beets rather than cutting them in order to minimize "bleeding".
