One of the best known and most popular varieties available, Beetroot ‘Boltardy’ produces good yields of deep red, globe shaped roots with a superb sweet flavour and tender, ring free flesh. This RHS AGM variety is bolt-resistant making it ideal for early sowings. Not only does this longstanding customer favourite offer perfect sweet roots for roasting, pickling and slicing for salads, the baby leaves can also be harvested through the season for salad use. Sow every two weeks from March through to mid July for a constant supply through the season. Height: 30cm (12″). Spread: 15cm (6″).
Direct sow beetroot seeds outdoors from March to July in a weed free, sunny position in fertile, light, well drained soil. Sow beetroot seeds thinly in shallow drills at a depth of 1cm (1/2″) and 30cm (12″) apart. Germination will usually take 12 to 24 days. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 5 – 7cm (2 – 3″) apart.
When growing beetroot, water as necessary to prevent the soil from drying out and keep the plants cool and moist. This will help to avoid plants running to seed. Roots can be lifted at any time from June to October once they have reached 1″ diameter or more. Harvest any remaining crops before the first frosts. Beetroot can be stored until mid spring in boxes of moist sand in a frost free shed or garage.
