Horseradish likes deep, moist soil but will tolerate almost any soil. A slightly acid soil is preferred. It likes full sun but will also grow in partial shade, however growth will be slower. You may want to find a place to plant Horseradish that is away from other garden areas, as it can become a weed, if gets out of the bed you prepared for it. Also it can be grown in containers, but make sure the containers are as large as possible because Horseradish roots need room to grow.

Horseradish plant is typically grown from root cuttings. Plant as early in the spring as you can. As soon as you get the root cuttings in early spring, plant them in the ground. Dig a hole that is deep enough to stand the root up in. While holding the root upright in the hole, back fill the hole until all but the crown of the root is showing. Once the root is planted, water your horseradish thoroughly and then leave it alone. Once your horseradish plant becomes established, it will be yours for life. After the first frost in the autumn kills the leaves, the root can be dug and divided. Horseradish left undisturbed in the garden spreads via underground shoots and can become invasive.
