I have always wanted to grown horseradish but had never got around to it. This year bought horseradish online from Ritchers Herbs in late June and planted it in two pots. I planted in pots for two reasons. First horseradish can be invasive in the garden and second our house is on the market so planted in pots will allow me to bring them to the new house if/when we move. One pot (pictured) is outdoors while the other is in the sunporch. The plant outdoors is growing nicely although there are a few signs of leaf damage. The plant growing in the sunporch is also growing nicely but is smaller. I'm looking forward to harvesting fresh horseradish root although it might not be this year.
