If you’re planting beetroots (or carrots for that matter) and you’re running out of space, you can easily squeeze them in using these 2 tricks!
- Grow rows of beets/carrots in between other plant rows as they take up little space. Try growing a row of beets between a row of cabbages or kales for example, or lettuces. Or you can grow carrots alongside onions or garlic.
- Plant your beets and carrots closely together, and harvest half early. You can get away with planting a row of, say, 20 beets or carrots leaving just 5 or 6cm between each plant. Then, harvest every other root while they are still small (as baby beets/carrots for salads etc) leaving the remainder to grow on to maturity.
