The Q&A Archives: Golden Beets In A Container

Question: I am growing golden beets for the first time this summer and was wondering if I could grow them in a pot?

Answer: Most any plant will adapt to growing in a container. Your beets should be given 6-8 inches of potting soil depth in order to grow nice-sized roots. Sow your seeds on the soil surface and cover with potting soil. As they emerge, thin the plants so they have 4-6 inches of space between them. You can do this in stages so you can harvest baby beets. When the tops are 2-4 inches tall, thin every other beet until they have about 4 inches between them. Be sure to keep the soil well watered all season, and make sure the container receives adequate sunlight. Enjoy!
