Special Directions for Short Season Climates
SOWING: Seed directly into the vegetable garden anytime soil is workable from March to September. Cover seeds-with 1/4 inch of light soil.
SPACING: Leave 6 to 12 inches between rows. In small areas grow radishes in beds, spacing plants 2 inches apart in all directions.
THINNING: When plants are established thin to approximately 1 1/2 inches apart.
GERMINATION: Approximately a week. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.
HARVEST: When plants have formed globe roots and while they are young and tender.
Ed's Special Advice
Treat soil to protect radishes from infestations of root insects. Sow seed every 2 to 3 weeks for continual harvest. Radishes grow best during the cooler parts of the growing season. They also prefer a somewhat rich soil and to be kept fairly moist.
