Beetroot 'Touchstone Gold'

Beetroot 'Touchstone Gold'

The best golden beet with smooth yellow fleshed roots. Excellent sweet flavour, the colour is retained when cooked.

 

When to sow: August until early March

Where to sow: Direct sow in a garden bed

Depth to sow: 1cm Aspect: Full sun or as sunny a spot as possible.

Soil: Prepared, well drained, fertilised soil. Add lime if soil is too acid.

Spacing: Between plants 10cm Between rows 30cm

 

Directions: It’s always best to sow beetroot seed straight into its permanent position in a prepared garden bed. Plant the seed about 1 cm apart and 1 cm deep and cover with fine soil. Thin to 10cm apart. If seed is planted sparingly there is really no reason to thin the seedlings out. I start pulling roots when they are quite small, 2cm in diameter, and this is all the thinning needed.
