When to Sow March to September.
Where to Sow Sow thinly in shallow drills 1.5cm(1/2in) deep,  direct in growing position, with 15cm (6in) between rows either in a well prepared seed bed or in a pot or container.
Sow successionally every 2 to 3 weeks to have a continuous supply throughout summer and early autumn.
Protect early sowings, with either a cloche or fleece, from frosts.
What to do Next Thin seedlings as required, leaving 5cm (2in) between each plant.
Keep well watered, especially in dry periods, and weed free.
Harvest April to October.
Handy Tips As a catch crop, radishes can be grown in the space between longer maturing vegetables such as Brassicas, to maximise usage of your plot.
To avoid the situation where too many radishes are ready to harvest at once, only sow short rows each time.
For best texture and flavour pick roots when they are still small and young.
To avoid radishes running to seed too quickly in hot summer months, consider moving pots or containers to a shadier position and keep well watered.
