Answer: Beets can be grown in a container with smaller varieties such as Kestrel and or Action recommended. For the best results, use the largest container you can (such as a half barrel) although beets can be grown in pots from about 8 to 18 inches across, too. Just plant them at the recommended spacing as indicated on the seed packet. To repot them, gently dig up each one and replant at the same depth as it grew before. Firm the soil and water it in. Remember too that you can eat the greens and thinnings as well as the official beets! Enjoy!
If you think you may be growing more plants in containers, you might take a look at a book or two about container growing. One I particualrly like is "Container Gardening fro Dummies" by Bill Marken, ISBN 0-7645-5057-8. In it you will find straightforward advice and tips as well as a section especially for vegetables.
