How to Grow Beetroot at Home

  • Beetroot seeds are much like Swiss Chard. They are best planted directly in the place you want them to grow.
  • It's important to keep the soil moist around the seedlings.
  • In five to eight days after planting them, you will see the little leaves of the beetroot appear from beneath the soil.
  • They will shoot upwards and after about two and a half months, you should see the bulb beginning to form.
  • You can push the soil up around the beetroot bulb, as this will allow it to become larger.
  • This is called ridging.
  • Always keep mulch close by the plant to help with soil nutrition.
