Everybody's got to learn atEverybody's got to learn at some point - not everyone had gardening parents who taught them, so ask away. Beets typically don't respond well to being transplanted - buy a packet of seeds instead (and it's way cheaper). If you're having trouble keeping the seeds moist enough to germinate, try putting an old board over the planted seeds after you water them. Check it every day for moisture (keep moist but not soaked) and sprouted beets. Remove the board once the beets are sprouted. They need full sun, or as much sun as you can give them.
