To celebrate our 140th year in the seed business, we're excited to bring back some old, old favourites from our archives!
This is a classic heirloom beetroot blend, including striking candy-striped Chioggia, red, white, and stunning golden (red on the outside) cultivars. This colourful mix will brighten up any salad. Also delicious roasted or steamed - or a tasty addition to sandwiches and home made burgers.
Choose a sunny, well-drained position and mix Yates Dynamic Lifter® into the soil. Each beetroot 'seed' is a cluster of 1-4 true seeds in a corky outer coating. Soak for two hours before sowing to ensure water penetrates to seeds. Sow seed direct where the plants are to grow or raise seedlings in small pots of Yates Black Magic® Seed Raising Mix. When 3-5 cm tall, separate clustered seedlings and transplant into their final position.
Grow in a sunny well-drained position. Apply Yates Thrive® Natural Fish & Seaweed + Plant Food weekly and keep seedlings well watered. Make successive sowings every few weeks. Protect from snails and slugs.
Pick tender young leaves for salads. Sow more seed at 4-5 weekly intervals for an ongoing supply.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct Sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
