Beetroot Boltardy Seed Tape

Overview

Botanical Name Beta vulgaris

These seeds are carefully spaced in biodegradable paper to allow even spacing and virtually eliminate the need for thinning. This is undoubtedly the finest beet to sow early because of its resistance to bolting (running to seed). The flavour is delicious and the beets are evenly shaped with good colour and texture.

We hope you enjoy these beetroot seeds, just another great example of seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!
