why can't i grow beetroot?
I don't seem able to grow beetroot any more! I try to follow the seed packet instructions closely, but they just seem to be straggly and rubbish. I seem to get thin red stems that crawl along the ground, but no globes.
Am I planting too shallow? I don't have a greenhouse. I plant direct into the soil, in a small raised bed. I have tried in rows and also in the ' square foot' block method.
Still no result. What am I doing wrong?
