This quick appearing crop is normally a rich red, and adds a beautiful colour to any salad bowl.
This edible root crop can vary a great deal in size and colour; all depending on the variety of Radish seed that is used. Radish seeds need to be sown in succession between March and September. They need to be liberally sown into finely raked soil, in rows about 25cm apart. The seeds should germinate within 4 to 7 days and reach maturity within 4 to 6 weeks.
We want you to have the best possible success with your seeds which is why they have to pass the most stringent tests in our laboratory and at our trial …

Radish Mooli requires a sunny position and a light, deep well drained soil that is on the poorer side. Dig sand or grit into the soil to ensure a friable soil that will allow the roots to swell to their maximum size. Sow the seed from July through to the end of September in rows spaced 23cm (9") apart. When the seedlings reach a height of 5cm (2") thin them to 2.5-4cm (1-1½") apart. To enjoy a regular supply sow in small batches at fortnightly intervals throughout the sowing period. Keep the plants well watered to encourage the roots to swell.
From an early July sowing baby roots can be harvested from late August. Larger roots will be ready to harvest by late November and can be stored in boxes of moist sand and kept in a cool frost free place.
There are a number of vegetables that are shade tolerant and these include beetroot, broccoli, kale, lettuce, radish, spinach, green beans, peas, runner beans, broad beans and herbs such as mint, parsley and chives.
For successful results, salad crops such as tomatoes, cucumber, sweetcorn and peppers, really need to be grown in full sun.
Brassica Downy Mildew is a common fungal disease and can be found on Alyssum, Cabbage, Cauliflowers, Brussels Sprouts, Horseradish, Radish, Stocks, Swedes, Turnips, Wallflowers and Watercress.
The disease is usually found on seedlings and young plants, although plants at all stages can be attacked. It is more of a problem in mild, damp weather or humid conditions. The spores can be soil borne or wind distributed.
Yellow patches form on the upper leaf surface with corresponding greyish - white fungal growth on the underside. The leaves are often blistered around the patches. In severe attacks the leaves turn yellow and die. There may be pale brown colouration of cauliflower curds and black streaks or spots on the stem.
Improve air circulation by ventilating the greenhouse or frame where the young plants are being raised, and by spacing the plants further apart. Remove affected leaves as soon as they are seen. There are no chemicals available for the control of this disease.
