Daikon radish is good for you, the garden and the pollinators. When you grow the daikon it will add to your soil and since it is a tap root it will send loads of little roots off to help break up the soil. This will allow for better drainage and lets in air. Once the radish is ready to harvest in about 2 months you can cut the green tops off and leave them in the garden. They will break down and release lots of nutrients into the soil keeping it in good stead for the next planting.
The daikon also blooms really early so it is a god plant to have for the pollinators when there isn’t much around for them. If you don’t want to eat the radish you can just leave in in the garden to break down and compost in place. If you do plan to eat the daikon and we really should because it has a lot of nutrition in it.
