Mr Fothergill’s Beetroot Boltardy Bumper Seed Pack
€3.20 “Price excl. VAT: €3.20”
Ideal beet for early sowing as it does not ‘bolt’. Lift young for ‘baby beets’ or leave to mature. An excellent source of folate and good source of potassium. Multigerm variety.
A Best Buy variety as recommended by the Gardening Press and Consumer Groups.
Twin pack – 275 seeds per packet
Sow outdoors thinly where they are to crop, 2.5cm (1”) deep directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1’) between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Thin seedling to 10cm (4”) apart. Water well until plants are established.
Regular sowings made very three weeks should ensure a continuous supply of young beets. Harvested roots can be stored in dry sand for winter use.
