My one week old radish seedlings have grown very leggy. This is the long white variety from Namdhari. Will they grow okay and produce radish or am I better off trying a new set of seeds.

If it is too leggy, try to mound up some soil around it and it should do fine. Keep it in a sunny spot. If you let it bend over, you might end up with twisted radishes or sometimes they don't for at all.

Hi GG:

Remember the same thing happened to me repeatedly last year with cauliflower, cabbage and broccoli ? Anyway, what I finally did was to 'transplant' the 'leggy seedlings' a little deeper into another container. That had done the trick but it was a lot of work ! It basically was the same 'mounding up soil around the seedling' but considering the extreme fragility of such seedlings I think "my method" was safer !! Hope you don't mind my suggesting an amendment your suggestion ! Regards.

Satish,

I agree with you 100% and I am happy to get feedback and improve it further. Your method is really good for plants that can be transplanted. Unfortunately Radish isn't one of them. Do keep us posted on how the brassicas are doing?
