Sowing beetroots in modules

Sow 8 modules for a single row across the bed.

Beetroots can be sown in the same way that we sowed radishes, four seeds per module. They will germinate on the polytunnel bench. Charles Dowding has an excellent video - cooking at first and then sowing at 1min.50.

Thinning Beetroots

Sometimes we get better seed germination than we need. See video above at 6min.00 for thinning seedlings.

Planting beetroots

See the video above at 7min.30.  The last part of the video shows harvesting.

Plant as we did for radishes, but with six to eight modules, 15-20cm apart, across the 1.2m bed

Fleece as we did for radishes.
