    Radish are really quick and easy plants to grow. This variety produces small round salad radishes with a red neck and white base. They are slow to go 'woody' and can be sown every couple of weeks to guarantee a regular supply for your salads. The flowers are edible and can be used to add a bit of a kick to salads. When you pull them up don't forget the leaves can be used as 'greens' too.

  • Growing Instructions:
    Sow outside - Direct into soil February to June and/or September to October
    Sow thinly, 2.5cm apart in rows spaced at 15cm apart

    Harvest: within 3-4 weeks of sowing.

      Hello There, I'm afraid you will have trouble getting a bumper yield of any of the edible crops if the bed receives little sun, as most of them need full sun. Ones that tolerate some shade include radish, potato, borage, horseradish, blueberry, blackberry and tayberry - all the others will flourish in the sun. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

  • Q:

    When do I plant potatoes and other veg?

    When is the best time to plants potatoes? Also can you advise me what veg I could grow now until March with poly tunnels?

    • A:

      You can start chitting your early and maincrop seed potatoes in February, but the best time to plant is in early to mid spring. As for growing vegetables in your polytunnels, you have lots of options. Spinach, kale, and some varieties of lettuce will live through the winter in a polytunnel. Certain kinds of onion work well from an autumn sowing, and you'll get a much earlier crop than if you'd waited until spring. Other possibilities are cabbage, Pak Choy, Chinese cabbage, and most root crops. Leeks, beets, carrots, turnips, parsnips and radishes, can be sown for winter harvest
