Hello Usha,

I tried Radish. It gave out healthy leaves. But I did not see any white stem near the root area. After about 40 days, I was not  sure about its growth and uprooted it. There was no growth in the stem. What is the growing period for radish? Should I have waited for more time? The pot was also deep enough to accommodate the growth of the roots. is transplantation necessary for radish?

Hi Jay, this is not a proffessional response but in my experience yes I think the crop I had earlier did take two months time only after the leaves have grown to their full size do the raddish seem to make its appearance.

I do not use seed tray and transplant , as far as possible I try to sow seeds only in the place or pot where I plan to have it for it full term... just my gut level feel of not making it go through the shock of transplant.

only when more seeds than I anticipated sprout have I transplanted, with raddish I have not tried transplantation. 

 Perhaps GG can give a more professional & specific response

Vijayalakshmi,

Ensure the following when you are starting a garden when on a rented premises.

1. Use lightweight medium such as cocopeat.
2. Dont let the water stagnate under the pot. Elevate the container by an inch or two using either a stone and drainmats available specifically for that purpose.
3. Use container that are lighter. Polybags are such a good option here. Dont go for huge cement pots. Not worth it.

Suggestion:

Always use a new thread when posting in a forum. People who knows the answer for your question may not be able to find it because its hidden in a different topic.
