I looked high and low for horseradish for the garden unsuccessfully at all the local nurseries. I even tried the local grocery stores for horseradish root in the produce section hoping I could plant it. I had had success a few years ago with a piece of horseradish root that grew in the house for awhile. A kind soul on one of the groups I followed suggested I check out Richters. Richters Herbs are located in Goodwood, ON so shipping wouldn't be an issue.
It has been quite some time since I ordered live plants to be shipped. I went to Richters' website, placed my order and paid for it then patiently sat back to await my plants. Of course I could buy just the horseradish. I also bought a couple of herbs and a scented geranium. The minimum order for live plants is 6. My order came to $31.93 with shipping and handling.
I was quite impressed with the packaging. The plants were well protected from damage during shipping. The invoice and order forms were included in the box along with an informational sheet on how to care for the plants on arrival and an informational pamphlet on growing herbs indoors or out. I carefully removed the plastic bags and watered them well then placed them in the sunporch.
I am quite pleased with my experience buying live plants from Ritchers Herbs. The selection and service is excellent. Given that I ordered outside the main shipping season my plants arrived quickly (13 days). The plants were well packaged and quite healthy looking. I definitely will be ordering from them again!
