You mentioned that Radishes are best planted at three times the seed's diameter. Could you suggest a specific depth for a variety such as a Cherry Radish?

I received some cherry radish in the mail yesterday and it says 10mm deep.

Just run the rake handle in the soil to make a small furrow 4-6mm deep. Shake a few seeds into one hand and then pick up a few with the other hand and drop along the furrow. When finished cover the seeds with 4-6mm of soil. Water them morning and night. You could put a piece of shade cloth over the top of them until they germinate.
