Horseradish thongs (roots) grow best in deep, well-drained soil which has had plenty of well-rotted farmyard manure (such as Orgro) or garden compost added to it. Plant the thongs as soon as possible after receipt. Plant the thongs at a slight angle with the sloping cut at the base and the flat one at the top, at about 5cm (2in) below the soils surface. Allow 60cm (2in) between thongs.
After planting top-dress with a general-purpose fertilizer, water well in and keep watered until established. Do not allow to dry out during summer months. Feed with a liquid feed with seaweed fertilizer during summer. Read more
