Horseradish is an excellent relish, and only a few plants will be needed to supply the family.

Only in higher altitudes of the South will it do its best. It prefers deep, sandy soil. Avoid very heavy clays or very light, sandy soils.

Horseradish is grown from root cuttings about 4 or 5 inches long. Get them from seed stores and set in late winter.

Cultivate throughout summer and dig roots in fall. Even though best roots are obtained by planting each year, the common practice, when growing only for home use, is to let plants remain year after year, digging parts of the roots as needed.
