Horseradish is adapted to the north and is not suited for southern planting except in high altitudes. Plant in the spring, after the ground warms to 50ºF. Select a sunny site in an area that has rich, well-drained soil and till the soil to a depth of about 12”. Plant in a 6-8” furrow, spacing plants 12-18” apart, with the flat, cut end facing up. Fertilize generously with compost, manure or garden fertilizer. Allow the roots to develop by not harvesting the first season. Horseradish makes its best growth in the cool autumn, steadily improving after September. Roots can be harvested after the first frost in late fall, or in early spring before new growth begins. Roots become hotter with age. Lift plants and roots with spading fork. Wash off roots and store in a clean, plastic bag in the refrigerator. Supplied as #1 sized set.
NOTE: At shipping time, your plants will just be emerging from dormancy. Plant them immediately to avoid any plant injury. BE SURE TO WATER YOUR PLANTS REGULARLY THIS FIRST SEASON TO HELP GET THEM ESTABLISHED.
