Product Description

A popular and reliable variety of beetroot, ‘Boltardy’ is an award-winning, proven gardener’s favourite that produces plentiful crops of deep red, globe-shaped roots with a superbly sweet flavour.

With fabulously sweet and tender roots, this delicious variety is perfect for cooking – whether roasting or pickling, or for soups and salads. Not only tasty, it is good for you, too, being an excellent source of folate, with good levels of potassium and vitamin C. The green leaves and stems also make good, nutritious eating when harvested young, at about 5-8cm tall. Rich in iron and vitamins, they have a similar flavour to leafy veg such as spinach, kale or Swish chard – delicious when steamed, sautéed or added to soups or stews, or even raw in a salad.

Holding the RHS Award of Garden Merit, ‘Boltardy’ is guaranteed to give high-yielding, high-quality crops that are bolt-resistant, so can be sown for early to late harvesting. The roots’ smooth skin, vibrant colour and ring-free flesh also make it a top choice for showing – and popular for organic gardening.

Sow outdoors from March to July where they are to crop. They will thrive in a sunny position in fertile, light soil that is moist but well-drained. For maximum yields, sow every 2 to 3 weeks from February to June to ensure a constant supply through the season. Lift young roots to use as ‘baby beets’, leaving every other in a row to mature to a larger size, if desired. The larger beets can then be stored in dry sand, soil or peat in a cool position to ensure supplies through the winter.

Supplied as a packet of approx. 180 seeds ready to sow outdoors March to July, 30cm (12in) apart, directly in their growing position, for harvesting June to October.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Do not cut the leaves when harvesting, but twist them off to prevent the colour bleeding.
  • Young leaves are also edible and can be cooked like spinach or similar soft-leaved green veg.

Care Guide

How to grow Beetroot ‘Boltardy’

  • Sow outdoors thinly where they are to crop, 2.5cm (1in) deep, directly into finely prepared soil that has already been watered. Allow 30cm (12in) between rows.
  • Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Thin seedlings to 10cm (4in) apart.
  • Water well until plants are established.
  • Regular sowings made every 2 to 3 weeks should ensure a continuous supply of young beets.
  • Harvested roots can be stored in dry sand for winter use.
