Our vegetable plugs are healthy, strong plugs in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown on before planting out. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 2.5 – 3.5cm deep x 1.5 - 3cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided
Beetroot is easy and quick to grow, especially from plug plants, and the roots can be harvested when young or left for a few more weeks to mature.
Special requirements – Ensure beetroot plants get enough water especially if there is a long spell of dry weather; the roots need moisture to swell them and they will go woody through lack of water.
