Growing Directions:

Grow only in soil. Beets seeds are an abnormally shaped seed, which contributes to why its preferred medium is soil. Their root systems require a bit more room to explore and grab hold. Prepare your soil in your tray by tamping it and making sure it is moist. after pre-soak, sow your seeds and then cover with a thin layer of soil. This provides the ideal conditions for the seeds to germinate. After a while, the beets will start to poke through the the top layer"which also serves to de-shell the seed. Keep covered with the blackout dome for up to five days. After that, place under a grow light until mature! Cut close to the soil line to feature the red stem.
