Radishes, spring onions, lettuces and similar crops that do not keep well or are required in large quantities over a long period are often grown successionally. What this means is that not all the seed is sown at the same time. For example, radishes might be sown every week to supply fresh radishes at the right stage throughout the season. As well as producing a crop at the peak of perfection, the area of ground needed for production is much reduced.
