Sowing and Growing Guide

Chioggia Beetroot

Indoor Sowing:

  • Sow seeds indoors in modules or small pots from late winter to early spring (February to March).
  • Use seed compost and sow one seed per module or pot.
  • Water gently and place in a warm, bright spot.
  • Seedlings should emerge within 1-2 weeks.
  • Once they have developed their first true leaves, transplant into larger pots or into the garden.

Outdoor Sowing:

  • Sow seeds directly into the garden from mid-spring to early summer (April to June).
  • Choose a sunny, well-drained spot with fertile soil.
  • Sow seeds thinly in rows about 30cm apart.
  • Water gently and keep soil moist until seedlings emerge.
  • Thin out seedlings to 10cm apart when they are large enough to handle.


  • Beetroot prefers a moist, fertile soil and a sunny spot.
  • Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged.
  • Feed every few weeks with a balanced fertiliser.
  • Harvest when roots are 3-4cm in diameter, usually 12-16 weeks after sowing.
