Can radishes be over watered?
Not to hot, but just right and a radish's flavor is divine. Too much water leads to root rot, while not enough causes splitting and hotness. If you get the seeds in the ground two to three weeks before the last winter frost, they'll be ready for eating radishes in 25 to 45 days.
How much sun and water does radish need?
Radishes require at least 6 hours of full sun per day, but they are tolerant of some shade. As a cool weather crop, a shady area could allow you to grow radishes longer into the growing season than you might otherwise be able to, as soil temperatures will be slightly lower.
Why are my radishes growing so slowly?
Excess nitrogen in soil and neutral acidity will also slow the forming of radishes. A common cause of radishes not growing bulbs is overcrowding. Overcrowded radishes don't have the room they need to produce fleshy bulbs, so thinning to two inches (5 cm.) apart can help promote bulb formation.
