Organic Certified Early Wonder Beetroot Seeds
Don’t throw away your beetroot’s hearty green leaves. Eat your organic beet from root to leaf by cooking the leaves and thinking of them like spinach. They are entirely edible and taste like Swiss Chard. We love Chef Tom Hunt’s recipe to make your beetroot leaves into a delicious dip. Take a look at his recipe here.
Sandveld Organics is an organic farm in Lambert’s Bay on the West Coast of South Africa. They’re a supplier of certified organic, open pollinated seeds. This means that you can save your own seeds to grow more plants with most of the qualities of the parent plant.
The Sandveld Organics founders, Theunis and Susi Engelbrecht, are pioneers in organic agriculture on the West Coast. Sharing their knowledge and experience, they started assisting a group of less privileged women from the fishing community in Lamberts Bay, struggling with their vegetable garden. Together with the support of several State Departments, this initiative has developed into a structures support programme to help emerging farmers.
You can enjoy growing your own organic food, eating more fresh fruit and vegetables and improve your physical and mental health at the same time by planting your Sandveld Organics seeds.
When to plant
Sow these organic beetroot seeds in any month of the year in moderate climates. Other areas to avoid sowing in mid-summer and mid-winter. Grows well with herbs, onions, beans, and carrots. Beetroot will not perform well if planted next to cabbage. Full instructions on back of packaging.
