Beetroot 'Bull's Blood'
Remarkably sweet roots with deep purple leaves. Useful for creating a decorative border, as well as for the table! 90 gram roots at 8 week harvest.
Beetroot prefers a rich soil, with plenty of well rotted compost dug in. Drainage is important, as is a pH of 6.5-7, so add some lime or dolomite if needed. They tolerate salty conditions. Soak the seed overnight for even germination. Roots with irregular colour, or woody, tough roots can be the result of irregular watering or a very high pH- above pH 7.5.
