I have been attempting to grow beetroot in my current location for 20 years. I have given it a miss a few times but have probably had about 15 attempts. Twice I have had a mammoth crop. The rest of the times nothing. I don't have a problem germinating the seed but once germinated they never seem to get past the 2 leaf stage - they will just sit like that for ever more. Occasionally they will progress a bit and I may end up with just a few skinny little roots. I've sown into beds and into modules. I've tried no end of varieties too. Does anyone have a secret for beetroot?
