My guess would be you have picked it too early or your soil is a bit poor. Read the notes here about growing it. Or google how to grow it.

Try nursery or internet seed selling companies.

Does horseradish produce seeds. If, when and how to recognise them. Where to buy in Australia the horseradish seeds? Regards Chris

Hi Chris, It's easy to grow from a piece of root , you just have to plant it and it takes care of itself. It's best not to plant in the garden as it is invasive.I have it growing in a large pot and can send you a piece if you like . Cheers Clare

Hi Clare, I'm a huge fan of horse radish, but a newbie to vegetable gardening. I would love to give growing horse radish a try if you have another piece of root spare. Happy to pay costs.

Try googling about how to grow horseradish. Look up seed selling companies to buy it.
