Radishes for autumn


Radishes can be sown outdoors until September. So if you still want fresh radishes from your own garden in October and November, you should sow them now. Make sure that you choose fast-growing varieties, so that this will still be this fall. The seeds are sown in a row at a depth of no more than one centimeter. The row spacing should be at least 20 centimeters.

Radishes need sun
Even though radishes usually grow in partial shade, they need full sun in autumn. If autumn becomes very sunny and dry, you can cover the plants with a fleece. If the plants open and they are too close together, thin them out. As a result, the radishes develop better and become more tasty.

Enemies of the radishes
The radish fly's natural enemy, the radish fly, no longer needs to be feared in autumn. Make sure that you keep the soil moist at all times so that the tubers do not become too sharp and woody.
