I always thought it was better to sow root vegetables direct rather than into modules to avoid root disturbance. Which is why, until now, I’ve always sown beetroot and radish in situ. However as I’m a bit pushed on space in the polytunnel, but want to get ahead, I’ve decided to try sowing in modules and then transplanting out, quite young, in about 2-3 weeks time. This way I’m hoping to minimise the root disturbance. I’ll also direct sow at the tail end of March, weather dependent. My go to guru, Charles Dowding has a video on module sowing here, (it’s excellent).
