Let me tell you the best way & time to grow red radish seeds on your rooftop garden, choose good seeds for growing red radish. The better the seeds, the higher the germination rate, and the better the fruit will be. It is a cool season crop and grows very quickly and grows well even in rainy seasons. By the way, red radish seeds are first planted in December to January and before April, Since we have to plant the seeds before April, it will be better for us to choose the month of March. Keep a distance of three to four inches when planting its seeds because it is a root vegetable that grows in the soil, so it needs more space to spread. Always use soft soil to germinate the seeds, this facilitates batch-in-germination and keeps the batch no more than an inch deep when planting. If necessary, you can uproot its plants and transplant them in an open place or shift them into pots as needed.

Soil Preparation For Red Radish

If you want to make the best soil for growing red radish, take 70 percent garden soil mix 30 percent cow dung compost well in the soil, and fill the pot. Try to fill the container with soil that is eight to ten inches deep because it is a root vegetable and has to grow underground with its leaves growing outwards. After planting the seeds at a distance of three to four inches, sprinkle water well in the soil and it is not necessary to water it frequently. Place the pot in a place where the sun shines for a long time throughout the day because vegetable plants need more sunlight. After five to six days, the red radish seeds will start to emerge from the soil, and small plants will grow. One thing to remember is that it is very important to dig the soil in the vegetable plants. After some days, if you keep digging in the soil, then the plant will produce such a good fruit, because its roots will be able to get air, and the plants will also breathe.
