  • Top Tip: Horseradish roots are best when fresh but they can be grated, dried and stored for future use if you have too much.

Horseradish loves to soak up the sun and will thrive in a south- or west-facing spot in full sun or partial shade. This is a deciduous perennial and will retreat below ground level in autumn. It is a hardy plant that will tolerate cold winter temperatures and burst back to life in spring. The tiny flowers begin to bloom in May and stand tall in pinnacles above the foliage. 

Armoracia rusticana is known for its tightly twisted roots, which can be harvested for use in the kitchen. The most common dish associated with this herb is Horseradish Sauce, a tangy accompaniment for fish and roast meat. Hold off harvesting Horseradish until after the first frost as this is said to enhance its flavour. Bear in mind only around half the root should be harvested in order to leave plenty of root to flourish the following year.

Horseradish is easy to grow but can be invasive if left to its own devices. However, it does well in pots and containers and can be kept under control in this way. Make sure you use a deep container to afford plenty of space for the roots to grow.

Please Note: When purchasing plants please consider that each live item is unique and may therefore differ from the images shown, which are for illustration purposes only - The plant will be supplied in a growers pot.
