I keep getting white spots on my radish leaves. Also, if you can tell me how the soil should be prepared and what type of soil is best for growing radishes, as I haven’t had much success. At times they seem to bulb but most times they just grow like thin roots. They’re not overcrowded. I only sprinkled a tiny amount of seeds.
