Sowing under glass or in a greenhouse can start in february. But it takes longer for the radishes to develop. Sowing outdoors can start from march or april (after frost) untill september.
Sow thinly, about ½ - 1 cm deep in rows with a distance of 5 cm. Thin the seedlings out to 3 cm each when they are large enough to handle. This way they have enough space to develop.
Sow a couple of rows each week so you can harvest all summer long. Don't use to much fertilizer because to much feeding can cause rotting.
