A member of the mustard family, horseradish (Armoracia rusticana) is a multi-purpose vegetable for the garden. This beautiful leafy plant has long, spiky edible leaves that make a fine addition to fresh salads. Long stems of white flowers bloom in mid-summer to add some extra interest in the garden.
But these plants have a thick, fleshy taproot system that’s the most useful part of the plant. Fresh horseradish makes some of the most flavourful condiments and sauces around.
If you plant horseradish, make sure you place it where you want it to stay. These perennial plants need a permanent planting space in full sun. Place transplants or root cuttings in the garden once the soil is dry enough to be worked.
