Beetroot no show ?

My Beetroots have all grown with plenty of leaves but no actual beetroots have formed, they have been in for months now. I sowed them in a trug with multi purpose compost ,would that make any difference?


  • Possibly too crowded or lack of phosphorus & too much nitrogen.
    The would haven better in the ground.
    Still eat the leaves tho..

    Thanks for your help.
  • If it's any consolation my beetroot harvest wasn't great either..
  • Yes agree that they need space.
    Have picked some over the last few weeks and brilliant.
    Also sowed some more seeds 3 weeks ago to try and get another row but even if they don't make big beets they can still be used for the stems and small beets.
