There is a very high demand for seed at the moment, and we are doing our best to keep up with orders and packeting up more seeds. As such we are only accepting a certain amount of orders per day.
Our online shop will be open from 9am each day and we will close it once we have reached our capacity. We have also had to put limits on the amount of any one variety per order (3) and of total order amount (£50), to try to be as fair as possible to all our customers.
Thanks for your patience - we hope you and your loved ones are fit and healthy during this challenging time.
P.S. We apologise in advance if you happen to be in the middle of placing an order when we shut down the shop, and understand how frustrating this would be, but it will inevitably happen to some
Beetroot – Detroit (Organic)
Reliable maincrop beetroot producing large globe-shaped red roots. This is a classic variety, having proved itself since 1892 when it was introduced by the D.M. Ferry Seed Company, in Michigan, USA! It is reliable and high-yielding and remains a favourite with gardeners and growers to this day.
The large, globe-shaped beets have the typical beetroot colour and an excellent flavour which makes it perfect for baking, sautéing, grating into salads, pickling and anything else that you might want to do with a beetroot. Yes, it will also store well! The green and red-veined leaves can be used like spinach and are equally tasty.
