When root crops fail to grow, it's usually soil. It should be loose and sandy for good root growth. If it's hard, the roots will have difficulty expanding. Since radishes grow so quickly, you have lots of time to prepare a new planting area and sow more seeds. Work in about 3 inches of compost or other organic matter prior to planting your radishes and I think you'll see a big difference in their growth. Enjoy your garden!
