Growing Tips

When preparing the soil, avoid fresh manure and organic materials or fertilizers high in nitrogen. When the radish seedlings are about two inches tall, thin the plants to three-inch spacings. Mulch the radishes with compost enriched with wood ashes. Water in moderation.

Watering

Radish plants typically need 1 inch of water per week. Soak the soil as needed (more frequently if the soil drains very quickly) to reach the roots, depending on the type of radish you're growing.
