Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.
Companion planting: Try growing radishes with mint to deter flea beetles, which chew irregular holes in the leaves.
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.
