I have plenty of horse radish, but I live in United States and I don’t know if I can send the roots over seas. If I can mail the roots I will. Does anyone know?

New Zealand has strict quarantine laws when it comes to importing fruit, herbs and vegetables.I am sure they would not let it come in.

Hi, I would love to plant horseradish in my Waihi garden. Is there anyone in the area who can spare a piece of root? Cheers, Vera
