You should sow radishes in rows 1-2 cm deep with a 1-2 cm spacing between the seeds. At the same time, the distance between the rows should be 15-20 centimeters, so that the root crops have enough room to grow.
How to prepare the soil
Before you put radish seeds in the ground, the soil should be loosened so that it has good air passage. You can also apply fertilizer - organic compost or phosphorus-potassium mineral.
What conditions do you need?
Radish will germinate and develop well when the air temperature reaches +15-20 degrees. He also needs regular moisture. Water the vegetable with a small amount of water, but often - once every 1-2 days. The place where you sow the radish should be well-lit by the sun so that the vegetable will get juicier.
