When to Plant Horseradish?

Posted by Edymnion z7 (My Page) on

At this very moment I have a large horseradish root sitting on my counter that I got from the supermarket. Its a little dry, but it should still be perfectly viable for planting and starting my own plant for next season.

My question is when is best to actually plant these things? Are they like garlic where I should stick it in soil now and let it sit through the winter, or should I just eat this one now and get another one in spring when I'm doing the rest of my planting?

I don't know but a previous thread on this page seems indicate its OK to plant now.

Excellent, I'll toss the top half in a large container outside and eat the bottom half. If it doesn't grow, well then I'll just get more come spring.

It should be planted in soil. The container may freeze completely. Although in Zone 7 you will probably get away with it.

Eh, if it does I'm only out half a grocery store horseradish root.
