Horseradish Root

Armoracia rusticana, Horse Radish, Cochlearia armoracia

Hardy Perennial

The essential accompaniment to roast beef - nothing beats the bite of your own freshly grated horseradish root. Horseradish is a vigorous perennial herb that will return year after year for an increasing supply of hot, tangy roots. These thongs are quick to establish and easy to grow, requiring little aftercare. When planted in ideal conditions, horseradish plants may become invasive, but can grown in a container to control its growth and restrict its spread. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Grow horseradish in any fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Plant horseradish roots (thongs) in spring or autumn at a depth of 30cm (12") and at a 45° angle. Cover with soil and water well after planting. Alternatively grow horseradish in large containers to restrict its vigorous growth. Use a good quality compost such as John Innes No. 2 and position in full sun.
Horseradish requires little attention but will appreciate watering during particularly dry periods. Harvest the roots in autumn by lifting the entire root with a garden fork. Horseradish may be stored in a paper bag in the fridge for up to a week after harvesting. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.
