Beetroot

Beetroot
Normally grown for the roots (they are cooked and eaten hot or cold or grated raw into salads) but the young leaves are also edible and they are a colourful addition to salads. Sow in the open from mid March to July or sow under glass Jan/Feb for crops from May onwards. Late sowings in August will need protection later. Make several sowings for a continuous supply.
