I think daikon is a winter vegetable.. planting now will go straight to flower and therefor don't send the nutrients anymore to root. I plant mine beginning of autumn, when summer temperatures are gone. Tried a second end crop, sown mid august (in tray in green house), but it went to flower beginning of october. I'm in the Blue Mountains.

Plants that go to flower and seed quickly generally the soil is poor.

I have some about 3 weeks old and some just germinated a few days ago. I pulled some out about 3 weeks ago. Will see how they go.
