With radishes the most common problems are growing them in the summer time (they grow best in early spring or late fall), or to grow them too close together or in too much shade. Any of these conditions will keep them from producing roots. Try planting in the very early spring or sowing seeds in late-August so they can grow during the cooler months of the year. Good luck with your radishes.
