Wild Horseradish

Hereford, United Kingdom Gb

Morning all, i was wondering if you could possibly help me to find some wild horseradish, ive been looking round country lanes etc but no luck so far, i was adviced to look for something very similar to a dock leave just with no red spots and with a toothed leaf, could anybody advice me further,if anyone is nearby and knows of some being somewhere that would be even better, thanks all

You may find it growing wild, but do be careful where you plant it, it is a real thug and almost impossible to get rid of. It is worth having if you plant it in an unwanted space.

You won't get much scent from it , not like mint. Try wild garlic if you need to mask a smell.

I've got some Horseradish on the allotment. It looks like narrow leaved dock and is impossible to dig out! Only smells when you break through the roots. Eco-warriors use reed beds to clean sewage water, so you could try them, I suppose, they don't smell though.
