Horeradish Root
« Posted: 06 Dec 2011, 16:51:56 »
I have been lucky enough to come across fresh Horseradish Root and have been told if I plant this in the garden I will have my own crop next year, but I am not sure if I can plant it this time of year as every book says springtime.   Can anyone help please. :unsure:

I have found the root pretty hardy and have moved in the winter myself.

Thank you for your reply. I am a complete gardening novice; do you plant it side on and would you put any plant food in the soil at this time of year.?

If you have a complete root it should be planted on it's end with the remains of foliage pointing up, shouldn't bother feeding until spring. I hope you have plenty of room as in a good spot it really spreads, other wise you'll have to contain it or thin each year. Plenty of info on internet, just google it.

I have plenty so if it doesn't come up in spring you can have one of my roots.
