Grow Your Own!

 

Horseradish

 

Do you enjoy the pungent and distinct taste of Horseradish? Why not grow your own! Horseradish is a rugged and cold hardy perennial with very few problems from disease or pests, great for any beginner. Plant in early spring as soon as the soil is dry enough to be worked. They can tolerate most any soil as long as it’s not waterlogged but loose soil will make it much easier to harvest the roots.

 

Find a sunny location and loosen soil down to about a foot deep working in some compost to get your plant off to a vigorous start. Take your root start and plant at a 45 degree angle with 30” from any other plants. Bury it with the crown just above soil surface. Water it in and watch your Horseradish grow. The roots will spread to about 18” or more and the green leafs reaching 24”. To keep from looking ragged in the summer, water weekly.
