5 years ago I planted five Big Tops and one didn't come up. Nourse made it good and instead of replacing just one root they sent me five!! All of them grew OK.

Now I have 5 nice hills of healthy 3-foot tall horseradish plants that produce 1" to 1 1/2" diameter roots.

One piece of advice: be patient.
For the home garden, I added a few horseradish and rhubarb roots to my commercial order of strawberry plants. Four weeks later, I almost was about to write Nourse to ask, the strawberries are up and running, even the rhubarb roots that at first looked terrible look now fabulous, but, finally, the horseradish leaves are also perking up, with evident vigor.
I might report later, but I suspect I will be as satisfied with these, as I am so far with the other purchases I made in 2021 from Nourse, my first year as a commercial farmer in New Hampshire.
