'Boltardy' remains one of the most popular varieties of beetroot. Bolt-resistant, it can be sown earlier than many beetroot. For the earliest crops, sow under cloche protection as soon as the soil warms up at the start of the year. Later crops can be lifted in late autumn and stored in sand for use during the winter months. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
