Growing Radishes From Seed
-------------------- Sponsored Links --------------------


Every part of your radish plant can be eaten, from the leaves right to the roots. This is why growing radishes from seed can be really exciting. Most of the time I use both the leaves and the bulbs in salads. You can also add your radishes to potato soup, homemade healthy juices or as a sauteed side dish. They are a good source of vitamin B6, riboflavin, magnesium, copper, as well as potassium and calcium.

Children love to grow radishes because of how fast they become ready to harvest. It goes without saying that if your kids can easily and successfully grow these, adults should have no problems at all. There are four main varieties, one for each of the seasons. They come in many different sizes, shapes, lengths, colors, and sizes too.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Make sure you have a nice sunny area to place your planter. Fill the planter with potting soil, remove any lumps. Take your seeds and plant them half an inch deep and an inch apart. Depending on the variety you grow germination may begin within 72 hours. For a continuous supply throughout summer, plant your seeds two weeks apart.

Keep them well watered, and be ready to thin them out as they grow. The true magic of the radish is how fast they can mature.  It can take as little as two and a half weeks.  As for pests, watch out for the larvae of the small white butterflies they feed on the leaves. You can enjoy them fresh for up to 3 days after harvest, otherwise freeze them to enjoy them for up to 60 days.
