Seed Tube Vegetables - Radish French Breakfast
This popular old variety has stood the test of time. It’s crisp, crunchy, cylindrical roots have a strong, clean flavour that spice up your summer salads.
Radishes grow well in most soils, but prefer rich, moist free draining soils. Sow seeds at regular intervals from spring through summer in well cultivated soil. Sow seeds very thinly 1cm deep in drills 15cm apart. Thin out the seedlings to 20mm as necessary. Ready to harvest from 21 days from sowing.
Companion planting: Try growing radishes with mint to deter flea beetles, which chew irregular holes in the leaves.
