Propagating by seed

From Early Spring TO Late Summer

Sow radish seeds thinly in light, well-draining soil. Sow at a depth of about 1/2". They can be sown as a "catch crop" between other types of slower-growing vegetables, as radishes grow quickly, and can usually be harvested in about 4 weeks from sowing. If sown thinly, (1" apart) will not need thinning. Sow every two weeks for a succession. Water well after sowing, and keep the soil moist.

 

Planting

From Mid Spring TO Late Autumn

Root vegetables do not always transplant well, so, although it can be done, with care, it is usually best to grow them in the site where you want them to stay.
