How to water the radish

One of the main operations to obtain the perfect radish is without a doubt irrigation. In order to become sweet and not woody they need a continuous supply of water, but with different attentions. If on the one hand we are talking about a lot of water it is also good to be careful not to overdo it, if the leaves grow too much compared to the root then there is the problem of too spicy taste and wooden consistency. To solve the problem it is necessary to make sure that there are no weeds around the radish that can steal the water from the vegetables, keeping the soil clean is really essential, and also watering abundantly once a day. The earth must not be hot during the watering operation or there is a risk that the water will evaporate,

How to grow radish


The radish can be grown with two different methods: that in the ground or in pots. To cultivate on the ground, you must fertilize and prepare well-cleaned soil, you can sow or put ready-made seedlings, this depends on whether you have the space and above all the suitable climate. Small furrows with a distance of about 15 centimeters must be prepared and covered with a layer of one centimeter of earth, wetting immediately after sowing to help the formation of the root. If, on the other hand, you do not have space on the ground but you want to try to grow them on the balcony you must take a large pot to have the space and also high in order not to limit the development of the root, therefore remember to put at least ten centimeters of earth before the seeds and finally cover seeds or seedlings with an inch of earth and wet.

Fertilize the soil


As with all vegetables it is necessary to have a soil rich in nutrients or the result will certainly be poor, in fact, not only water is needed but rich earth is needed, both for cultivation in pots and in the vegetable garden. To prepare the cultivation it is necessary to treat the soil before sowing the radish. There are different types of fertilizer, you can also find chemical products, sold in the form of small spheres, which when mixed in the earth in contact with the humidity of the water present, dissolve and release the necessary nutrients. For those looking for something more natural, it is possible to use manure or in any case natural preparations. If you have a composter, the cheapest and most natural solution is this, you are sure that your cultivation is of biological origin.
