Hello, I planted radishess inHello, I planted radishess in April, in the San Fernando Valley, zone 19 I believe. I followed the advice of a local greenthumb 'expert' using 1/2 chicken manured and 1/2 potting soil sewn 3 inches apart, an inch deep, all 40 seeds sprouted, grew about an inch, and abruptly stopped. They won't die, but they won't grow. I have even spaced them out even further, with less manure in the mix, nothing. They just sit there. They get about 6-7 hrs of good strong sun a day, and I water them to moisture in the AM. I am trying to convince my wife that only oranges and porn stars grow in the San Fernando Valley, but she insists.
