Recommended by Rachel de Thame in BBC Gardeners World Magazine (January 2015 edition): “A real favourite with gardeners. As the name suggests, it’s bolt-resistant so you can sow it from early in the season until late. Has a sweet flavour.”

Also recommended by Charles Dowding, Matt Biggs, Jane Bingham, Rosie Yeoman, Terry Walton and Mike Thurlow.

Sow & Grow

Outdoors: Sow thinly, March-July, where they are to crop, 2.5cm (1″) deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1′) between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Thin seedlings to 10cm (4″) apart. Water well until plants are established. Regular sowings, made every three weeks, should ensure a continuous supply of young beets. Harvest: June-October.
