Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Sow Detroit Dark Red Beet seeds in rows as early as the ground can be worked. After planting, press down covering with soil firmly. Beets perform best in full sun and well drained soil. When the tops are about 6" tall, pull the plants until the roots are 4" apart. Harvest beets when roots are 3" in diameter.

Planting Depth: 1"

Seed Spacing: Plant your Detroit Dark Red Beet seeds roughly 4" apart in rows keeping rows approximately 18" apart.

Nutrient Care Instructions: Apply SUPERthrive once per week. Soak in solution of 1/4 tsp per gal for 15 min. or longer depending on size and type.

Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

The small, slender tops make delicious greens. Beets can be grown repeatedly during the season for a bountiful crop.

At Ferry Morse, we are proud of our non-GMO & guaranteed fresh seeds.
