Growing Radishes

Radish: Usually grown as an intercrop, being sown between mid-winter and early spring, and again in late summer and early autumn under cloches. If grown on their own, a low barn cloche will cover five or six rows. Sweet Corn: this can be sown direct under cloches in southern districts during late spring in well-prepared ground. Sow two seeds at each station, and remove the weaker seedling. In cold districts, plants are best sown in pots in a greenhouse in mid-spring for late spring planting. Normal spacing is 35-45 cm (14-18”) between plants when either sown or transplanted. A row of French beans can be sown either side of a single row of sweet corn. It is better to grow corn in staggered double rows, with about 30 cm (12”) between rows, under large cloches, to assist fertilization. Remove the cloches when the foliage touches the roofs.
