Can I plant horseradish from the store?

Introduction: How to Grow Horseradish From a Root You Buy at the Grocery Store.

It can be hard to find good horseradish plants or roots, sometimes only at specialty nurseries.

Subsequently, one may also ask, where is the best place to plant horseradish?

Horseradish grows best in moist, silty soils like those found in river bottomland, but enriched clay or sandy loam with a near neutral pH is acceptable. Situate horseradish roots diagonally in the soil, with the slanted end down and the flat end up.

Beside above, how do you store horseradish root for planting? Gently dig up your plants and cut off the large, thick roots to use. Leave some of the smaller root pieces in the soil to start new plants for the next year. You can keep them in the refrigerator for a few weeks. Or store in damp sand or sawdust in a cool, dark cellar for up to 10 months.

Moreover, where can I buy horseradish to grow?

Grow horseradish from plants or root cuttings set out in spring or fall. You won't be able to find seeds, but roots are often available at farmers' markets, supermarkets, and retail and mail-order nurseries. (Root cuttings from nurseries generally come precut and just need to be planted.)
