Horseradish is a hardy perennial herb.
Spreading with determination every year if left to its own devices, this herb reaches a height of one metre.
The roots can grow to a meter in length.
The leaves are large and long, almost paddle-shaped, growing 30-50cm. In the spring, heads of pretty, small white flowers with a sweet honey scent develop.
Seed pods however rarely ripen in our climate.
In cold parts of the country, flowers often fail to develop.
Horseradish is in the same family as cabbage and mustard, Cruciferae and contains the distinctive mustard oils that are common to this family.
Both the leaves and roots were used extensively as medicine in Europe during the Middle Ages.
Some countries, such as Denmark and Germany ate it as a condiment.
Plant can also be grown indoors
