Common Name: Horseradish
Botanical Name : Armoracia  rusticana

This fabulous plant has been able to take care of itself for many centuries. It was brought to colonial America and soon became a 'native' plant. Springtime planting is best. Grows best in moist, fertile loam, but any good garden soil will give excellent results. Since Horseradish produces no seed, new plantings are started from small roots trimmed from the larger ones after harvesting. To keep your horseradish bed from overgrowing it's boundaries it is a good idea to dig all the roots in alternate years, throw away those not needed and replant the bed next spring.
