Grow & Make Your Own Horseradish Sauce
If you're familiar with horseradish you'll know about its fantastically pungent and fiery taste and smell. The roots of this perennial brassica are harvested in autumn as the leaves start to die back and are grated to make delicious horseradish sauce - the traditional condiment for roast beef. Horseradish is also excellent with smoked fish and makes a fantastic relish when mixed with diced beetroot and served on cheese and crackers. In addition to its use as a culinary herb horseradish also makes a striking garden plant with its large architectural leaves. This listing is for one large established crown cutting. Horseradish Plant Care: Horseradish can be very fast growing and quite invasive if not kept in check, you are therefore best to keep your horseradish planted in a large container if you have a small garden. This can then be sunk into the ground to contain the roots or left on the patio. Horseradish is a very easy plant to care for. It prefers a spot in full sun with quite water retentive soil but will grow in partial shade and dryer soil if these conditions are not available. When your plants are packaged the leaves may have to be trimmed back as they can often grow too big for safely packaging, and in winter your plant will be completly dormant and will have no leaves at all. These will soon grow back once your horseradish is planted out or when the growing season begins.
