If you didn’t think to add radishes to your dishes, you will now. Here’s how to grow your own radishes that will make Fraggles jealous. 

hang loose with your soil.

Soil should be loose, moist, and nutrient-rich for radishes to grow and thrive.  Miracle-Gro® Organics Garden Mix for Vegetables & Herbs is the perfect blend that you can use alone or mix it with your own soil.

sow the radish seeds. (yes, they do have seeds!)

3 to 4 weeks before the last spring or fall frost is predicted, grab those radish seeds (wondering why you can’t see them? Seeds appear only after the root veg is edible.) Spring radishes usually take 18 to 45 days to  harvest and winter radishes anywhere between 45 to 70 days. Plant the seeds ½ inch deep and 1 inch apart.  

grow rad radishes

When your radish babies reach 1 inch in height, begin thinning them so the radishes can spread their roots and leaves, ideally 2 to 3 inches apart.

raising radishes right

The most important thing to do for your radish plants is to keep them watered so the soil is moist and remove any weeds that may surround them. Radishes grow best in partial shade or beside taller plants that can protect them from strong sun rays. 

they grow up so fast

Radishes are a precocious bunch; they mature before you know it. The grow quickly but left in the ground they will break open, so pluck ‘em when they look like they’re ready to eat.
