Wanted - Sugar beet seeds

Postby The Colonel » Wed Aug 24, 2011 9:00 pm

A bit of an odd request but does anyone have any sugar beet seeds please? I've always wondered what the beets look like and having a bit of ground would like to plant half a dozen to see what they turn out like. According to wikipedia they are very small seeds so a packet probably does a whole field. If anyone had any please PM me and I'll send P&P to you.

Evening Michael, years ago i think i could have got some seed from every farmer around these parts, but none of them grow it anymore.

There is a heritage variety for sale on ebay, if that helps.
