I have an heirloom variety that is very strong that my husbands grandfather grew if you find that what you have is not as good I could send you some . We have 2 kinds the one is much milder and not as much flavor.
Nice Al. I tried for a couple of years to find some of the Horseradish my Grandfather had cultivated. The patch was destroyed long ago during a renovation to the property and those that got some, did away with it years ago.
A friend brought some in to me from his family patch, will hopefully spread this patch around as it gets bigger. Will wait to harvest until next year when it has a better foot hold.
Nice to have a link to the past like that.

This may be an old thread, but I'm interested learning more about raising garlic. I love it, plus I'm told when planted alongside roses/etc the garlic helps reduce insects etc. My property is rock base, so any planting is "mining"so, I built several raised boxes for roses and tried some garlic bulbs last year without success--mostly due to my planting at the wrong time/ wrong variety etc. I'm sure. So any tips, or sites to go for info is appreciated.--Thankx Lee
Garlic is fairly easy to grow you can get fresh cloves from the grocery seperate them and plant point up anout an inch deep . You can plant first of march or so where you are . And yes garlic should help with insects. here is a good site for seeds and info rareseeds.com/
