hi, we have grown beetroot for the first time this year,while it was tasty we had some with stems growing inside the midle of it..can anyone tell me where we went wrong..did we cut it to soon or not wait long enough? thank u.



New one on me. I can only assume that it is the odd weather, or some aberrant seeds. Glad the rest were/are ok.

its a stupid answer i know with all rain but did the soil at some time go very dry if so they would think they were dying and so rushed with seed stalk for survival
