How To Grow In a sunny site with well worked rich, deep sandy loam soil, sow seed in early spring or again in mid summer for fall crops. Lay out tape and cover with 12 mm (1/2") of soil. Keep rows at 60 cm (24') apart. Maintain even soil moisture during the 8 to 10 day germination period. Beet is a compound seed (this means each seed can actually produce up to 4 sprouts) so diligent thinning of the sprouts to 7 cm (3") apart is often required. While even soil moisture is required during the active growth period, over watering can lead to excessive leaf growth and pale and/or small roots.
