Anyone have this?
I would be glad to pay shipping, buy or trade. The roots online are expensive... I'd rather buy from one of you if You have them.

Also looking for tansy to repel borers and other nasties.

I have a lot of tansy and would be happy to share just for the cost of shipping. Do you know how to prepare and pkg plants to ship? It blooms every year but I've never noticed seedlings..it seems to just spread by roots and fairly quickly.
I think I have shared too much horseradish and can't find it anymore. Fortunately I know who I gave some too and can get a little back.

Just buy a horseradish root from the supermarket, cut it up and plant it. Make sure you want it where you put it, because after you transplant it, it's coming back. Even here in Fairbanks it thrives with no attention and holds its own in heavy sod. I need more plants like that.

I don't know... But I would imagine that if it were wrapped in paper towels and put in a ziplock it would do ok... But I may need more than you can offer. My sister wants some for her garden too. Thank you for your kindness, I think I may need seeds...
