    The root of this vegetable is delicious when grated and used in association with roast beef or fish. It is easy to grow and has a very strong flavour, but care should be taken when preparing horseradish as the pungent fumes can cause irritation to the eyes. Great stuff for clearing the sinuses!

  • Garden care: Best planted in early spring into 15cm deep holes which are spaced at 60cm intervals. To stop it getting out of hand (it can become invasive), you should lift all the plants in October after the first frost. You can store the roots in sand, using the larger ones in the kitchen, and replanting the smaller ones the following spring. Alternatively you can grow it in a deep container filled with John Innes No 2 compost.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
