Companion Planting for Beetroot
Beetroot is a vegetable that does well with companion planting as it does not take up too much space. It will do well with Broccoli, beans, cabbage, lettuce, onions and brassicas, and passion fruits. Beans, like all other legumes, are perfect for adding nitrogen to the soil.
Planting: Plant your seeds after the last danger of frost has passed. Sow the seeds directly into garden soil 2″ deep and 3″ apart. After the seedlings grow 1-2 ” tall, gradually thin the crop to stand 12″ apart. Keep weeds under control and the soil well-watered but not too wet. The plants will need about 1″ of water a week.
Watering: Keep soil most, but not waterlogged.
Fertilizer: Prior to planting, add an organic fertilizer to the soil. Low maintenance.
Days to Maturity: 55-60 days. Seedlings emerge in 7-10 days.
Size: Will grow to 2-4′ tall.
Harvesting: As soon as the plants are well-filled out, you can pick fresh pods. To dry beans, allow them to stay on the plants until they are partially dry–about 80 days after planting. Pull up the plants and hang them in a warm, dry place with good air circulation. Once the pods are completely dry, shell the beans and save the pods for future composting.
