Radishes are a thankful tuber for the vegetable garden.

After all, it doesn't take long to grow and can still be grown in September.

The small, aromatic tuber needs just four to six weeks before it is ready to be harvested.

This is good news for all those who want to quickly grow some vegetables *.

In addition, the tuber vegetables are relatively easy to care for and are therefore also suitable for hobby gardeners without a green thumb.

Here we reveal

how to

grow

the

radishes in the garden or on the balcony

.

Growing radishes: tips for the tuber vegetables

Depending on the variety, the radishes can ideally be

grown between March and September

.

It doesn't matter whether you have your own vegetable garden or a small balcony.

It is only important that you find a sunny to partially shaded place for the cultivation.

The soil can be evenly moist, humic and loose.

If you like, you can also enrich the soil with natural fertilizers - but it is not necessary.

In order to

grow

the

radishes in the garden

, it is advisable to make seed grooves in the ground and plant the plants in them at a distance of about one centimeter.

Now put some more soil over it and press it down a little.

If you want to

grow

the

radishes in a pot

, you can of course do that too.

For this you need a large container in which you can keep a distance of about 10 to 15 centimeters.

It is also important to provide a drainage system - radishes do not like waterlogging.

Caring for and protecting radishes: this is important to note

Even if the radishes are not very susceptible, one or the other pest can attack the tuber.

Caution is advised against cabbage flies or earth fleas

. They like to eat the leaves of the radishes. Ideally, you can protect the vegetables by incorporating them into a mixed culture. So that the tuber vegetables can grow quickly, you should pay attention to adequate watering. Keep the

soil sufficiently moist

.

Fertilizing is generally not necessary.

If you still don't want to do without it, you should work with a sure instinct here.

Too many nutrients turn the tubers black instead of a juicy red.

Since the heads of the radishes often look out of the ground, they can tell when the vegetables are ready to be harvested.

In most cases, however, it is about

four to six weeks after cultivation

.

Harvest and store radishes - with these tips

Once you have the impression that the tuber vegetables are ready to be harvested, it has to be done relatively quickly. About four to nine days later, the radishes may already

taste woody

. Then they have mostly lost their crunchy consistency. So when the radishes are ripe for harvest, you should loosen up the soil a little and carefully pull the tuber out of the soil. Then the leafy green is removed and the tuber is wrapped in a moist wrap.

The

radishes are then fresh in the

refrigerator

for up to two days.
