Care Guide

Good pest and disease resistance

Beetroots do not suffer massively from pests or diseases. If your Beetroots have been eaten it is very usually the work of mice, voles or some other small rodent. MORE

Water regularly

To prevent the Beetroots from splitting, the ground has to be kept consistently moist. Touch the ground, if it is dry a fingernail down, then give the plant a watering.MORE

Full Sun

Plant in a position where the plants will receive around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.MORE

Any fertile, well-draining soil

Will grow well in a mix of three parts compost and one part topsoil. Beetroots do not like soil that is above 7 (neutral) in the pH scale and will prefer a soil between 6.0-6.8, so slightly acidic.MORE

Feed regularly

Use a feed such as liquid seaweed every two weeks to help provide your soil with important nutrients such as Boron which essential for healthy Beetroot growth.MORE

Pruning not required

No pruning needed.MORE
