Planting Tips For Beet Seeds:

Beet seeds can be planted in early spring or midsummer.  Soak seeds overnight in damp towel before planting for excellent germination.  Plant beet seeds 1” apart and thin weakest seedlings to desired spacing.  Keep soil evenly moist to prevent beet roots from getting woody.  For longer harvest, stagger beet plantings every 2-3 weeks.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
