Beet Seed

Beets are fairly easy to grow in all but the hottest weather. They prefer cool temperatures and tolerate an occasional light frost. Beets can be started indoors 5-6 weeks before the last of the heavy frosts, or direct sown in succession when the soil has warmed to extend the harvest. Can be grown as a 'double' crop for Spring and Fall. Sow about 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep in rows 1 foot apart. Although beets do well in cool weather, best germination is at soil temperatures of 55-75 F. SPECIAL CAUTION: Untreated beet seed is particularly susceptible to failure if planted in soil that is too cool or wet. Beets will do well in most any soil, but best performance is in loose, loamy soil that is not too acidic (ph of 6 or more is best). Wide weather fluctuations can cause 'banding' in the root.
