Beets do not do well in poor soil or clay soil,
so prepare the soil by adding compost and manure. They thrive in cooler
regions. Plant your seeds outdoors directly in the garden. Planting should
occur as soon as soil can be worked and 1 week after last frost. Plant in 2 to
3 weeks intervals for a steady harvest until about 2 months before first
killing frost in the fall. Plants can grow 2" to 12" tall.
Requires loose fertile soil that is slightly alkaline in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or
straw around base of plant.
Keep soil uniformly moist and from drying out.
Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when
transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.
Dig or pull roots when 2" or greater. You can harvest beets for greens at
any time. Leave fall crop in the ground until needed or when soil begins

I orginally planted the Long Season Lutz Beets on April 3, 2010 and not one seed germinated. I replanted the same seeds on May 2, 2010 and noticed sprouts on June 1, 2010. They were planted in the same place, the only difference is that we had some very warm weather. ANYWAY - they did germinate.
