  • Place beet greens in a large pot. Do not add additional water. The wet leaves will provide enough moisture.
  • Cover and cook over medium heat until greens are wilted, about 3 to 5 minutes. Do not over-cook.
  • Serve with butter, salt and pepper.

Why are my beets not growing?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Improper spacing, inadequate soil, inappropriate watering, and incorrect depth are some of the reasons why beets do not grow.

Specifically, beets dislike being planted too deep since they only need to be 1/2-1 inch (1.27-1.54 centimeters) below ground-level. They do not like to be spaced too far apart since proper root growth only requires 2-3 inches (5.08-7.62 centimeters) between one stem and another. They favor fertile soil that does not water-log, drains like loam, and has no below-ground clumps or obstructions. They will be finicky about cooler temperatures since they need them in order to develop properly.
