“Follow Our Traditional Cultivation & Have Healthy Lifestyle”

Radish is an excellent vegetable to cultivate in a tiny space. As a result, it’s a popular choice among container gardeners. Because radish is a root vegetable, the growing conditions for the root should be optimal. The root will not be able to grow well if your pot frequently dries out. As a result, keep the potting soil moist. However, make sure it isn’t too wet. The root will rot as a result of this.

How to Grow Radish:

Radishes thrive on soil that is high in organic matter. As soon as the soil is workable, add a few inches of old Compost or an All-Purpose Fertilizer to the planting area. To avoid disturbing the roots of radish plants, spread the seeds directly in the garden. Sow seeds 12 to 1 inch deep and 1 inch apart in rows 12 inches apart outside.

Climate Requirements:

Radish grows well in cooler climes, but it needs enough sunlight to thrive. Overcrowding is preventing your radishes from growing. For radish root crops, the soil is vital; radishes like fertile, well-drained, sandy (deep) soils with good organic content.

Fertilizer Requirement:

Root vegetables respond well to liquid fertilizers. To fertilize your radish plants, use organic liquid fertilizers like Panchakavya or compost tea once a week.

Pest:

Check for aphids under the leaves every now and then. If you come across them, use a water jet to flush them out. You might also use neem spray once a week to get rid of them. Remove any leaf-eating caterpillars or insects manually if you discover them. If you don’t look for the first thing in the morning, you’ll never find them.

Water Requirement:

Radishes require water, but not excessive amounts. Radishes will grow in a well-drained seedbed. Keep the soil wet but not drenched. Before watering, make sure the soil isn’t completely dry.

Sunlight:

Radishes need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day, but they can tolerate little shade. Because radishes are a cool-weather crop, a shaded location may allow to grow them for longer.
