Start From Seed: Detailed instructions for direct seeding, or starting seeds indoors and transplanting.
Plant root cuttings within a week of receipt and after danger of frost has passed. Create a furrow 6" deep. Place roots 18" apart in the furrow and cover with 2-3 inches of soil. Irrigate if soil is dry at planting time, and keep moderately moist throughout the growing season.
Growing Conditions: Growing seasons, soil types, water and fertility requirements.
Choose a permanent location for this long-lived perennial. Loose, well drained soil enriched with ample organic compost gives the best results. Tolerates a pH range between 6.0 and 8.0. Widely adaptable, but harder to grow in the south (AL,FL,GA,LA,MS,TX) where warm winters prevent full dormancy and may lead to frost-kill or injury.
Pest Prevention: Organic solutions to common problems.
Pests and diseases are not usually an issue with Horseradish. The horseradish itself may become a weed in the garden. To prevent unwanted spreading, harvest the entire root system and replant only as many root cuttings as you need. Do not put Horseradish in your compost pile or you will spread it around your whole garden.
Harvest: Is it ready yet? When to harvest and how to store your garden produce.
Wait until plants are 1 year old to make your first harvest. Dig roots annually thereafter and replant root cuttings to keep it going. Harvest when roots are 2-3” in diameter and 8-10” long. Dig after a hard frost in the late fall for sweeter roots. You can also harvest in early spring before the plants leaf out. Store fresh roots in the refrigerator or the root cellar, ideally between 30-32˚F. Make your own horseradish sauce, or dry the roots for long storage.
