    Notes & Growing Tips: Grow only in soil. Beets can be grown hydroponically but are very difficult. Beet greens are very colorful. Cut close to the soil line to feature the red stem. When sowing in soil, spread the soaked seeds thickly across a slightly compacted bed of soil, then cover with a thin layer of soil. Tamp lightly. Keep covered with the blackout dome for close to a week.
