Our Feedback
Only the second time I have used your company but when I wanted to increase my small orchard by just one tree I thought of you immediately. I was not disappointed. Immediate response to my question followed by very fast delivery of a healthy tree. I will certainly recommend you to my neighbours when they want something just that little bit better for the garden.

As the name suggests, Boltardy beetroot is bolt resistant. It has a delicious deep red flesh with a smooth skin and very few rings with an intense sweet flavour.

We have grown this variety of beetroot for many, many years (along with many other amateurs and professionals alike) as it is such an excellent variety.

Young leaves can be eaten as baby leaves. The small beets can be used as salad beetroot and then of course the mature beets can be used in salads or cooked as a vegetable. Boltardy has excellent storing ability.

Eat raw grated, boiled - with or without vinegar, or roasted as beetroot chips. And if that's not enough you can use the mature leaves just like Spinach or Chard, so versatile!

  • For Early Beetroot
  • Plant out hardened 4" (10 cm) apart in rows 12" (30 cm) apart.
  • Thin out to one plant per station or remove one at a time carefully when about the size of a table tennis ball leaving one to grow to full size.
  • Harvest approximately May - July for early beetroot andapproximately September - October for late.
  • Top Tips
  • Water regularly in hot dry weather to keep roots sweet and stop them going 'woody'.
  • Roots will store all Winter without loss of flavour if plunged in course sand or well composted bark.
