Horseradish is easy to harvest when grown in a container.

Thanks...!  I'll get them dug for you.  How do you want them mailed?  I was thinking the best way for the plants is in a bag with dirt and sent priority small box....that runs $7.15.  If you want them mailed in a padded envelope and regular mail, I'm sure it would be less expensive.  You can correspond with me via email if that is easier.... scerato11@aol.com.  I can send a paypal request if that works for you.

Tips for growing.  Well, they have been in this garden for fifty years.  So, once you get them planted and let them grow for the year, you can pretty much count on them coming back every year.  I'd think harvesting some of the roots in the Fall would be fine if they reach a good size in your soil.  Otherwise, I'd wait until the following Fall.  Any little piece of root will put up a new shoot the following Spring.  I use a Ninja machine to grind the peeled and cut up root until it is a fine consistency, pack it in a jar and cover it with white vinegar...keep it in the fridge.  One of the things I love is when the days are hot...and the Sun heats up the leaves....the whole garden smells like horseradish.  I'll be able to mail them off to you on Thursday.  I'll need the mailing address.  And, thanks...enjoy

Be careful about planting that near anything else important....it spreads vigorously and when you dig it, sprouts will come up from the least bit of root left.

You're right about it spreading.  It has been in this garden for decades.  Every Spring I till it up and plant on either side of a strip that I leave for harvesting.  I've never had a problem with it and the plants/crop nearby.  I just pull it out as if it were a weed.  Mulching is effective.  As someone suggested, you could sure plant it in containers and eliminate the possibility of it spreading.

Thank you!!  I'm so happy that this little bit of Iowa will be contributing to good food for lots of people.  I'm glad they traveled well.  I wondered if you got a chuckle at the packing job.  Those flat rate boxes don't count on "packers" using them.  I've tilled the gardens and just left enough horseradish to give me a fresh supply come Fall.  Now...on with the garden work.  I appreciate the feedback.

I checked the garden and there are plenty I can send.  The rate is $1.00 each and $7.15 for a priority flat rate box.  You can use paypal to scerato11@aol.com.  Just let me know what you decide and I can send them tomorrow.

Susan,

After seeing the starts, I would like to order 100 cubic yards of the soil they came in. Can that fit in a flat rate box?

LOL...it really is gorgeous and such a pleasure to work with ... plants love it, too.  Really...I don't think it will fit in any USPS box!

Thanks

That is interesting.... I have a clump of volunteer horseradish here in Montana that has been in the same spot for many years and the guy we bought the place from says he never did anything with it but mow it down along with the grass. It doesn't appear to be spreading at all. I wonder if it matters that it is growing in hard shade under an apple tree (which is thick and messy, having been both neglected and mauled by bears) and in prairie grass that's taller than the horseradish. It looks vigorous enough, grows big leaves and blooms, so doesn't seem at all upset with its lot in life. I don't eat it, so haven't done a thing with it. I wonder if harvesting encourages it to spread when leaving it alone might not?

Hi....
I think the clue here is that you don't do anything with it ... as in tilling around or through the patch...that will scatter the roots and create new plants.
