Prepare your soil: Beets prefer loose, well-draining soil with a pH between 6.0 and 7.5. Amend your soil with compost or organic matter if necessary.
Planting: Sow seeds directly in the garden 2-3 weeks before the last frost date or when the soil reaches 50°F. Plant seeds 1/2 inch deep, 1-2 inches apart in rows 12-18 inches apart. Thin seedlings to 3-4 inches apart when they have two true leaves.
Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Beets have shallow roots, so regular watering is important.
Fertilizing: Beets are heavy feeders and benefit from a balanced fertilizer every 3-4 weeks—side-dress with compost or aged manure mid-season.
Harvesting: Beets are ready to harvest when the roots are 1-3 inches long. Pull the entire plant from the ground or cut the greens off 1-2 inches above the root. Beets can be stored in the refrigerator for several weeks.
With Gardeners Basics' Beet Seeds for Planting, you'll be able to enjoy a variety of delicious and nutritious beets throughout the growing season. Whether you're a seasoned gardener or just starting, this pack is an excellent choice for any home garden.
