Companion planting: Try growing radishes with mint to deter flea beetles, which chew irregular holes in the leaves.

Radishes grow well in most soils, but prefer rich, moist free draining soils. Sow seeds at regular intervals from early spring to early summer into well cultivated soil. Sow seeds very thinly 1cm (0.5in) deep in drills 15cm (6in) apart.

Thin out seedlings to 3-5cm (1 to 2in) apart.

Water during dry spells. Harvest as soon as the roots reach reasonable size, if left too long they will become hot and woody.
