I tried growing daikon from seed during winter but it did not grow. Would you plant the seeds into a seedling tray first or into the soil?

Daikon don't transplant well, but you could grow them in seed tubes so they can be transplanted without any disturbance. The ground might have been too cold for them to germinate over winter. They are often planted in summer/autumn in cold regions.
