Sow and grow: Outdoors, sow thinly, February-September, where they are to crop, 1.5 cm (1/2-inch) deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 23 cm (9-inch) between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-10 days. Water well until plants are established. Thin only if plants are overcrowded. Harvest: April-October.
Hints and tips: Regular watering ensures fast growth and prevents roots going ‘woody.’ Radishes are best sown ‘little and often.’
Care and Cultivation: Regular sowings, made every two to three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply.
