Question of the Week

I have three horseradish plants growing in raised beds, each in their second year. Can I leave them in longer and still have them be edible? Should I re-plant a portion of the root next spring, assuming I should harvest this fall? Can it be powdered like you advise with garlic (dried and then ground up in a dedicated ‘coffee’ grinder)? Basically how does one go about tending horseradish? Get the answer »
