Description

Thompson & Morgan is delighted to work alongside the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to offer special seed collections to home gardeners. The Kew Collection and The Kew Urban Garden Collection have been specially selected by The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Radish 'Amethyst' makes a particularly attractive addition to salads. The rich purple roots have a slightly metallic sheen with crisp white flesh that is slow to turn pithy. This RHS AGM variety has strong foliage for easy pulling and makes an excellent crop for containers, window boxes and greenhouse borders. Sow regularly for continuous succulent roots throughout the summer. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 10cm (4").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.


Companion planting: Try growing radishes with mint to deter flea beetles, which chew irregular holes in the leaves.
