Do you know anybody that has horseradish? If you do ask them if you can dig some up and replant it at your place and it will start growing. It's hard to kill. smile

I wish you would have asked a couple years ago.

When we bought our house in 95 there was a TON of horseradish growing in the back yard. Last year, I finally got the last of it killed. That stuff is impossible to get rid of, and if you mow it, it spreads.

I have seen the roots at grocery stores recently. Maybe super walmart? Don't you just plant a piece of root, like a potato?

Thanks for the offer I may take you up on that. Horseradish spreads by root right? The reason I say this I have seen people plant beds in a cut out kiddy pool to control the spread or plant the plant in a large bottomless pot in the ground.

When processing horseradish, cut the top 1 1/2 in of the crown, or top off the root. cut the crown into 1/2 in. square pieces length ways. On a two in. crown you can get 10 or 12 new sets to plant. Plant the sets just like you would a onion set and water the set. later in the fall, like the first part of oct. the sets don;t even need to be watered. Next spring those little buggers will be up and growing. I have done this for many years to start a new patch or help someone else start a patch. I sent a crown home with a friend from New Orleans 2 years ago and he has his own patch now.

ive been doing my own horseradish foy 20 years . i started my own patch by planting the tops, were the leaf starts by the root. make a patch away or by itself cause it spreads easy. i dig it up every 2 years, the roots get bigger that way, and replant the tops. i dont have an issue ith it spreading in my lawn.
