Hi. I would love to plant a bed of horseradish as I am finding it impossible to buy. If there is anyone you could suggest who might be able to help me set up my patch, that would be great. Thanks.

I enjoy eating what we can grow here on our farm. I've been thinking of growing horseradish. I'm in the central MS area. 8b I think but not certain. This will only be growing for our use not looking to grow commercial. What can I do or would you recommend? Thank you

Hi, I would love to find out where in the Hawkes Bay region I can buy a plant or cutting? Having grown up in Sweden / Europe with many traditional dishes containing the wonderfully hot root (grated and mixed in sauces, potato salads etc. .. the list is long) I truly miss the unique flavour ...
