Hi, this is Yolanda from vanveenbulbs.com, and in this segment we're going to learn all about how to grow horseradish. Now every herb garden should have the plants that you love to have in your kitchen. So one of my favorite kitchen items is horseradish. Now when I was growing up as a child I never liked horseradish, but in recent years, there's nothing like a nice piece of prime rib with some horseradish, and it's related to mustard or wasabi and they're very easy to grow in the garden. So horseradish is a very hardy perennial, it'll come back every year, and it just has a root or a stick kind of tuber, and so you just plant any part of that usually, and it will grow, and you can plant them spring, summer, or even fall, and they just take a little bit of time to get established, they have to have a good set of roots before they grow well. And the horseradish comes from the roots themselves, so as they multiply, too, just plant them about three inches deep in full hot sun, and as the roots multiply, you can dig them up every fall and you can dig some of those roots out and just shred them into little tiny pieces, and you'll find that you can make your own horseradish, and it's a very easy plant to grow in your garden, it'll come back year after, year after, year, and it's a delight to have with a piece of steak and it's a delight to have in your herb garden.
