How To Grow Radishes

Grow this veggie in your backyard with these easy tips.

All of us love radishes, but growing this veggie may be sometimes difficult for you. Today, I bring some easy ways to do radishes gardening. But before that, you need to learn some basics about growing this loving plant.

  • In spring, plant the radishes when the daily temperature ranges between 60°-65° F.
  • This plant likes well-drained and loose soil and prefers shady spots to grow.
  • If your soil is not healthy for planting, amend it with top fertile well-drained soil and also mix thoroughly Plantic Water Storing Hydro Crystals. These are micro-crystals which help prevent over and underwatering.
  • After raising your bed richness, dig a suitable space for seedlings, and plant seeds 1 inch apart from one another. When the seedlings become one inch tall, thin them so that you have 2-3 inches between them.
  • Before planting, make sure that you have removed all the weeds from their roots.
  • After planting, give your plant a little drop of Plantic Organic StartDrop! Liquid plant food periodically. Specially formulated for starter plants, encourage rapid rooting and growth.
  • Regularly water your plants to keep the soil moist whenever the plants look upset, or the topsoil layer becomes dry.
  • After a month, the soil will lack some nutrients as plants have absorbed them. So, you need to give the soil a drink of Plantic Organic GreenDrop! Liquid plant food. This plant food enriches the soil bed again with all essentials and protects your plants from disease. Also, helps maintain soil pH balance. Or, you can also use Plantic Organic AllDrop! Liquid plant food - this is an all-purpose plant fertilizer.
  • When the radishes gain their ideal colour and size, harvest them. And enjoy its delicious taste.

Start planting with seed

Once the temperature reaches between 60°F-65°F, start your plantation. Sow the seeds directly in the garden 6 weeks before the first fall or 3-4 weeks before the last spring frost. Make a space in soil bed which is perfect for the root ball and gives space for rooting. And then plant it. Fill in the area around the plant with topsoil mixture. After plantation, give your plants a boost of Plantic Organic StartDrop! Liquid fertilizer for better rooting and growth. After a month, when the soil lacks the key nutrients, feed your plants with Plantic Organic GreenDrop! Liquid fertilizer. Scientifically proven for its extreme benefits on plant health and nurture the plants for optimum growth and greening. Check out all Plantic products and know more about them.

Note: Radishes spring variety takes 18-45 days to mature, and winter variety takes 45-70 days.

Give them care and leave room to grow

Sow the seeds 1 inch apart from one another and 1/2 inch deep for better growth. And once the seedlings reach an inch tall, thin them out so, the plants are 2-3 inches apart.

It’s your responsibility to prevent them from any alien species (weeds). Remove the weeds from roots so that it won’t come back again. Also, don’t forget to water your plants when they look upset or dry. Feed your plants with their favourite mulch - Plantic Organic! Fertilizer according to its label direction.

Protect your growing from the intense heat by planting them in partially shady areas. Don’t forget to do a periodic check-up of your plants by keeping your eyes on its leaves and stem.
