Now you can enjoy even more home-grown goodness from Botanus. We’re thrilled to offer a select line of top quality, certified organic vegetable seeds. Aimer’s Organic Seeds is one of Canada’s most respected seed suppliers. Their mission is to provide only the best seeds available from certified organic producers whose quality meet the Canada No.1 standards.

 60 seed/gram. Sow seed directly into the garden 1.25 cm (1/2") deep in rows 30-45 cm (12-18") apart. Successive sowings as late as the first of July helps extend the harvest. Beets produce a compound seed which means each seed can produce up to 4 sprouts so thinning is essential for good root formation - thin seedlings to 10 cm (4") apart - you can use the tops of thinned beets as a source of baby greens. Irrigation is important during dry spells up until the roots begin to swell. Fertilizer improves quality and size of roots.
