    Radishes are fast maturing and easy to grow, as long as there is sun and moist, fertile and well-drained soil even in the smallest garden plot.

    Well suited to containers, sow in loam based compost and keep well watered in dry conditions and they will grow like normal.

    The radish greens can be used in a variety of dishes, and can be added to blended drinks and salads. They are incredibly versatile!

    Prepare you site beforehand, and your radishes will grow if adequate moisture is maintained.
