Beetroot – Boltardy (Organic)

£2.33

A classic all-purpose beetroot, well suited to early sowings as a result of its excellent resistance to bolting. Boltardy is a winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit and has a well earned reputation for being a real ‘workhorse’ variety. Many large scale growers choose this variety over its modern hybrid cousins for early sowings. We love it as it does exactly what is says on the tin.

Beetroot tips: Early sowings can be made indoors in modules from February and transplanted 4-5 weeks later. From March seeds can be direct-sown with protection from frost. Maincrop beetroot is direct-sown outdoors from April. Seeds should be sown into soil with a reasonably fine tilth. Beetroot ‘seeds’ are clusters of seeds which means they will need thinning to achieve their final spacing (30cm between rows, 10cm in-row).
