Lots of czech horseradish starts this year! I planted a whole row in my garden and will be enjoying it this spring. Prices are the same for this year - $2 apiece, and I will have a minimum order of 5. Shipping and handling is $6 to cover my expenses.

Planning on getting 5 of these from Jon this year, but trying to figure out where to put them. How big does this variety get?

Thanks,
-Holly Gates

The plants should be spaced 18" to 24" apart, they get around 18" to 24" tall. Quite vigorous!

I'll take 10, plus 60 of the large comfrey roots shipped to Oregon. Shoot me your PayPal and a shipped total and I'll get you paid. Can send a check as well. Thanks!

Chris

Planted the starts I got from Jon around the yard. I am in zone 6, Somerville MA, and they didn't put out leaves until fairly late in the spring. Mostly they are still pretty small but doing well. He sent me a bonus big root for grating and eating too (thanks Jon!). I did eat a bit of it, but planted most of it in a 1 meter wide terraced bed in my backyard which is mainly for espaliered apple trees and shortish companion perennials. It gets pretty good sun and the soil is decent and improving.

Already the horseradish is big! In the picture, you can see it back center. The plant just in front of it is coming out of one of the smaller roots I got. I didn't realize they were supposed to be planted horizontally, so I put them in vertically although I wasn't sure which side to put up or down. I don't think it matters that much given results so far. I've been nibbling the greens and they are tasty.

Also visible in the picture:
- Opalescent apple on B9/B118 interstem (planted last spring), being trained to the cable trellis
- Potato onions, leeks (annual - stuck them in here because there was a little space)
- Daffodils, oriental poppy, iris, tulips, chamomile
- red clover, sorrel

Last weekend the mother of a family friend came over to check out the garden after we were at her granddaughter's birthday party. She grew up in Slovakia and recognized the horseradish (growing from these starts) right away. She said when she was little they didn't have a fridge, but would make hundreds of jars and crocks of brine fermented vegetables, and they had a big root cellar which always had horseradish root in it in winter, along with loads of carrots, potatoes, and leeks. Twice a year they would kill a pig and preserve the meat in various ways, one of which was to wrap up pieces of meat in big horseradish leaves. She said her grandmother always said not to eat the greens because they were poisonous, but later in life she learned that was not the case and now eats greens off her horseradish plants in her garden in Nova Scotia.
