THE SEA­SON

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

FOR valu­able crops of win­ter beet­root, the seeds must be sown over the next week or so. Ger­mi­na­tion can be has­tened if the seeds are poured into a glass of water con­tain­ing half a tea­spoon of dis­solved boron. Al­low to soak overnight, drain the water and then re­fill with fresh. All vi­able seeds will grad­u­ally sink to the bot­tom while dead ones will float and can be eas­ily scooped off the top. Sow the swollen seeds im­me­di­ately into moist soil.
