Beetroot Heirloom Mix
Green, yellow and red ribbed leaves make a colourful addition to salads, while their roots provide a unique sweet taste. Includes Chioggia, Globe, Golden and White Blankoma.
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.
