Direct seed beets into the garden, or into the final container you'll use to grow them indoors. Thin seedlings so that there are a couple of inches between each remaining seedling. Use a balanced granular vegetable fertilizer in the soil or growing media at seeding time. Then side-dress the beets or use a liquid fertilizer one or two more times during their growing cycle.
