Horseradish is an easy to grow perennial root crop in my zone 6 gardens of south-central Connecticut – a plant-it-and-forget-it crop until autumn, when horseradish harvest time rolls around. It's a You Can Grow That! plant … so easy to grow that I'm often surprized more gardeners don't dedicate a sunny bed to it.
This is a repost from October 2012. All the American Holly transplanted into the woods survived the winter of 2012-2013 and added new leaves and a bit of height during the summer of 2013. Though one American Holly ended up with a broken main stalk from the weight from the three feet of snow that covered my Connecticut gardens in February 2013, it too shows signs of recovery.
