Radishes: big tops, no radishes
[Return to Topics]

This is the second year I have planted radishes in my greenhouse, it rains a lot here. The leaves get giant and no radishes, just little things.

Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

Radishes are cool weather crops

The heat will make them bolt
you have too much nitrogen in your soil...either do not add any or plant the radishes in a poor soil area...

good luck

I think that Tomatolord is close to solving your problem. What are you planting the radish seeds in (container wise)? You may be planting them in too shallow of a container.

How hot is it in your green houses?
Radishes do like cool temps, 60 to 70 degree's durring the day. Really wish I knew more about your opperation we could probably get you close.

Yea, I was thinking I had too much nitrigen and it does get hot in there. My beds are very deep. We usually have so much rain that we have to grow everything in a greenhouse, however, this year has been very dry. I will try and plant them outside next year.

Thanks for all your help.
