I live in Geelong. I have various results with growing beetroot. At the moment the bulb size is very small. What can help with this?

Beetroots fill out more in warm weather. Other reasons for size variations include planting too close together or not enough phosphorus in the soil. Sowing a green manure crop will remedy nutrient deficiencies. Good luck!

I grow from seed, plant out when 3-4 leaf stage about 5-6
