Plant a full month before the last expected frost. Presoak seeds for two hours before planting to soften the hard seed coat and speed germination. Direct sow in full sun and well drained soil, placing the seeds 1/2″ deep and 2-4″ apart in rows 1-2′ apart. Add compost or other organic matter for healthy growth, and tamp down the earth above the seeds to ensure the seed’s close contact with the soil. Germination should take place in 7-14 days. For companion planting benefits, plant beets with bush beans, onions, or members of the cabbage family; avoid planting them near pole beans.
