Like the idea of early beetroot in a container but it is not clear when you can do this. Is February too early ib an unheated green house or when?

would be nice to see short informative clips from planting to harvesting ?

It would be useful to know minimum germination temperatures for beetroot. The polystyrene will keep soil & seeds warm, but I guess you'd need more than one 70 ltr bag, for such a large container, which begins to make the beetroot quite expensive. Could I get the same results with "spent" potting compost, saved over from last year's crop of potatoes in buckets?
