60 seed/gram Sow seed directly into the garden 1.25 cm (1/2") deep in rows 30-45 cm (12-18") apart. Successive sowings as late as the first of July helps extend the harvest. Beets produce a compound seed which means each seed can produce up to 4 sprouts so thinning is essential for good root formation - thin seedlings to 10 cm (4") apart - you can use the tops of thinned beets as a source of baby greens. Irrigation is important during dry spells up until the roots begin to swell. Fertilizer improves quality and size of roots.
