Plant Space: 4″ (10cm)

Row Space: 18″ (46cm)

Start beets outdoors in loose, well-drained soil in early spring as soon as soil can be worked, or up to six weeks before fall frost. Beets prefer a cool climate and can tolerate mild frost.

Plant every two to three weeks for continuous harvest. Keep soil moist for best growth, easy harvest and sweetest flavor.
