3. Protect The Young Plants
Once you see your beet plants sprout, it’s normal to feel excited. Don’t make the mistake of letting your guard down though. These plants still need a lot of care and protection. There are many things that can damage, weaken, or kill the plants.
Some of those things, including insects, animals, frost, too much water, too much sun, and strong winds. If you want your new plants to thrive and provide you with plenty of tasty and nutritious beets, you will need to do everything you can to protect them.
Use organic insect and pest sprays, cover the plants in bad weather or during the hottest parts of the day, and make sure they are getting the perfect amount of water. It might take some time before you can let the beets take off on their own, but if you put in some effort early on in the growing process, you will reap the benefits of a successful garden.
