I wanted to make this thread to help me keep track of and document growing horseradish.

Hopefully it will be helpful to others also!

Hi Steve,

This is a horseradish I planted a couple of years ago.  I haven't done anything with it yet.

I planted these horseradish from root cuttings.

They have started coming up and have some smaller leaves forming in the middle.

I love horseradish and the strong kick it has, and am excited to have some to use with cocktail sauce and shrimp soon!

Does anyone else have any good uses for horseradish?

Here are some of the plants coming up.

That horseradish looks great Scott!

Have you planted any from seed?

Thanks, Steve.  

I have not planted horseradish from seed but I would.  I purchased this plant as a baby organic plant from a local Cidery.  The radish is planted in a heavy deer browse area, they actually bed down just on the other side of the hugel mound.  I have currants that are two years old and they look like seedlings.  :)

If you plant from seed it will just take a little longer to get established.  Maybe?   For me, most perennials don't gain footing until the second spring.  I planted asparagus from seed last spring and it is very delicate.

Young green leaves are nice in salads and edible flowers look nice and tasty
