How to Sow
Sowing in the garden, preferably choose a sunny spot, March through to August (from February if using a cold frame). It's a good idea to sow (half) a row every couple of weeks to give you a harvest almost throughout the year. Loosen the soil with a fork to at least 30 cm. Draw a furrow 1 cm deep and label the row. Lay the seed tape and cut off at the correct length. Cover with 0.5 cm soil, press carefully down and sprinkle with water. Extra rows, 20 cm apart. The seeds will germinate in 6-14 days.
Does not require additional fertiliser to improve the quality of your radishes. Water extra in periods of drought and keep the bed free of weeds. This will promote good healthy growth.
Always harvest the biggest radishes, allowing the smaller ones to keep growing. Carefully pull up individuals, or use a small trowel to loosen the soil around each one. Radishes are ready to pick early in the season.
These radishes (Raphanus sativus 'Saxa') grow into lovely globes which are red on the outside and white, juicy and crispy on the inside.
