SOWING POT BEETROOT
Ruth’s step-by-step guide makes it easy
1 If sowing in a container of used compost, spread it on the border first. Its nutritional value is slight, but it will improve the soil’s structure. 2 Refill with fresh multipurpose compost and sow the beetroot seeds thinly on top. Cover with a thin layer of compost. 3 Water well and label clearly. I’m using wooden labels in a bid to reduce the amount of plastic used in the garden. 4 Thin the seedlings when they are large enough. This gives each plant more room and helps the development of larger, healthier roots.
