I'm pretty sure most
people new to gardening, have grown radish, "French Breakfast" or "Scarlet Globe"
from seed which can be bought by clicking
here.Children also love this
starter type vegetable to grow. Trouble free and the
small salad vegetables are ready to eat in about one months time.For the mature plot
holder the red types, are always used to fill in between other rows of
vegetables, like peas or carrots. Radishes are quick to
germinate, and if grown in between rows of onions, parsnips or parsley, are
quick to mature and ready to harvest at an early stage.But there are many more
exotic varieties to grow.
The larger winter Radish is still a vegetable for someone who likes
an adventure, even though it is very easy to grow, for winter use in
salads or in casseroles as a hot vegetable. As with nearly all
vegetables there is always something to learn and to try out in the
Any area free from stones, well drained and rich in
humus or compost will produce very good results.
They can however produce decent supplies in any patch
without any proper consideration or preparation.
It is always better however to treat every project you
do big or small, with the best intentions, so as to
guarantee the robotic growth which is all important to
the tenderness and taste. Dig some humus or compost into
the soil along with a sprinkling of growmore and rake
down to a fine tilth.Pick
a spot which is in full sun in the spring, but the
plants will need a shadier spot in the summer, so don't
plant in the full sun, provide some shading or they will
bolt if allowed to dry out.
