Growing of Microgreen: As microgreens grow within 5-8 days and is ready for consumption.
Growing of the full beet plant: Plant inside neutral, moist, fertile soil without too much lime or acidity (pH 6.5-7.0). Choose a loction with full sun/partial shade. Sow seeds 2cm (3/4"-1") deep. Keep seeds or seedlings apart at a distance of at least 5 to 10cm (2-4").The seeds should tbe sown thinly across the surface and covered with 2cm (0.75in) of compost. Then, when the seedlings reach 2 cm (about an inch) in height, remove the weaker of the seedlings to give the vigorous plants room to grow – aim for about 12cm (5 inches) between seeds. Water moderately and avoid over-watering. This causes beetroot to produce more leaves and less root, risking them "bolting" (flowering and not producing a vegetable). What's more, under-watering creates woody roots. Regular fertilising is recommended to support healthy and robust growth. Matures in 40-52 days.
