Burpee’s Golden Yellow Beet – Heirloom Seeds / Rare seeds

Sowing: April to June

Harvest: July to November (until the first frosts)

Direct sowing in the ground. Wait until the soil warms up in late April for regular germination. Beets like potash-rich soils: once a year add 1 handful of ash/m2 to your soil. Make furrows with a shovel in the ground, 2cm deep, space the furrows 30cm apart. Sow a cluster (contains several seeds) every 20 cm. Water the bottom of the furrow, if it is dry during sowing. Cover lightly with soil. Tamp down with the back of the rake and water well. Thin 1 1/2 months later, when the plants are 4 or 5 leaves, keep only one vigorous plant every 25cm. Maintenance: hoe and weed until harvest. In case of high summer heat, water regularly so that the roots do not become hard and fibrous. Remember to mulch to keep the soil moist and space out weeding. Harvest as needed: gently lift with a spade fork and pull at the base of the leaves. Harvest them before frost because they are sensitive to it. It keeps well in the ground, throughout the winter.
