Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
One of the best known and most popular varieties available, Beetroot 'Boltardy' produces good yields of deep red, globe shaped roots with a superb sweet flavour and tender, ring free flesh. This RHS AGM variety is bolt-resistant making it ideal for early sowings. Not only does this longstanding customer favourite offer perfect sweet roots for roasting, pickling and slicing for salads, the baby leaves can also be harvested through the season for salad use. The best choice for early spring planting. Reliably producing high quality, tasty, dark-red rounded roots, up to 10cm (4in) across, with crisp, sweet flesh. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 15cm (6").

Grow beetroots in light, rich fertile, well drained soil in a sheltered position in full sun. Prepare the soil in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted farmyard manure to the soil to improve its structure and fertility. Space beetroots at a distance of 10cm (4") apart, and water thoroughly after planting. Cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects.

When growing beetroot, water when necessary to prevent the soil from drying out and keep the plants cool and moist. This will help to avoid plants running to seed. Roots can be lifted at any time from June to October once they have reached 3cm (1") diameter or more. Harvest any remaining crops before the first frosts. Beetroot can be stored until mid spring in boxes of moist sand in a frost free shed or garage.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
