Should I separate my beetroot seedlings when planting?

Q.

Hi Tui, should I separate Beetroot seedlings bought from a shop before planting out or plant in clumps?

Hi Jill,

Yes, thin out when planting beetroot seedlings from punnets otherwise they are going to grow on top of each other and won’t reach their full size if left in a clump. Take care not to break the long tap root when transplanting. Plant at a spacing of 8-10cm apart.

Thanks,
