Common Problems

Why are my beetroot seeds not germinating?
Sowing your seeds in too deep, overwatering or extreme weather conditions will hamper the germination process of your beetroot seeds.
2.Why are my beets small and deformed?
Despite of trying your best, sometimes your beets won’t grow well. They will remain small or deformed. Too much shade or overcrowding is the reason why your beetroot is not growing well. Make sure your beetroot plant is getting full sunlight for 6 - 8 hours every day.
Why are my beetroot seedlings wilting?
Overwatering is the main cause for wilting. Too much water can drown your seedlings and deprive their roots of air, which leads to wilting and your seedlings might eventually die.
