Sowing and Growing

Sowing and Growing

Sow outdoors, in the spot where they’re to grow. This can be in the ground, in containers or even in a growing bag. Sow seeds in short drills, 1cm (½in) deep and about 2.5cm (1in) apart.

  1. Prepare your soil mix and put your seeds at 2 cm depth.
  2. Spray the seeds and cover them with a plastic case to accelerate the germination process, don’t forget to make holes in the plastic case for the seeds to breathe. 

 

For an early crop, sow in February into pre-warmed soil and protect with cloches.

Keep the soil moist to ensure rapid growth, for fleshy, tasty roots that don’t split. This can be tricky in hot dry summer weather, so take care to water regularly.

Because radishes are quick to mature, they can be sown as a ‘catch crop’  between rows of slower-growing vegetables such as peas and potatoes.

They can even be used as row markers for slow-germinating crops, such as parsnip and onions – the radishes germinate quickly, marking out the row where the other crops have been sown, and are harvested before they can hinder the main crop.
