Almost any soil with good drainage.
Full sun to partial afternoon shade.
Single Plants: 3" (10cm) each way (minimum)
Rows: 3" (10cm) with 7" (20cm) row gap (minimum)
Sow and Plant
Sow seeds directly in the bed or row, one-half inch deep and 1 inch apart. Thin to proper spacing when the seedlings are 1 week old.
Our Garden Planner can produce a personalised calendar of when to sow, plant and harvest for your area.
Use radishes to mark divisions between sowings of salad greens or other spring vegetables.
Harvest round radishes when the roots are the size of a quarter. Young radishes have the best flavor, so pull them promptly.
Flea beetles often make small holes in leaves, but do not merit control.
