So I planted all 5 of the tubers and I somehow managed to kill all but 1 of them idk if it’s something I did or the soil I had but I was a bit disappointed I had bad luck with them everything else I have gotten from here has been either 100% germination or very close to it any advice would be appreciated.

Never came up.

Planted them in grow bags and they just didn't do anything. I emailed to ask if I could have done anything differently and no reply.

So sorry to hear your horseradish never come up. We checked our system and couldn't find an email from you.
As for the horseradish, it's hard to know what happened without much detail on the planting environment, but here are our growing tips: It prefers well-dug soil rich in organic matter. It also spreads easily, so you may want to isolate it. Apply 1-1 1/2 pounds of complete fertilizer per 20 square feet. Mix the fertilizer into the top 3-4 inches of soil. Dig a shallow trench and place the roots in the trench horizontally, spacing them 1-2 feet apart and cover with 2 inches of soil. You'll harvest larger roots if the plants are kept well watered throughout the summer.
I hope that helps! Please feel free to email info@territorialseed.com if you have any other questions.

First time horseradish grower.

Got 5 roots last year. They looked small and a little sad. They grew to huge plants and huge roots. Harvested a lot from these 5 little roots. I'm very pleased with them. Planted them in a 2 foot deep water trough to keep them contained. they rooted all the way down to the bottom.

Sprouted immediately

All 5 roots sprouted within a week. Really great quality bare roots.

Armoracia rusticana Horseradish, believed to be a native of east-central Europe, was considered a drug before it became a condiment. This strong pepper root was used to quiet persistent coughs from influenza, stimulate the nervous system, and even cure scurvy. Modern science has identified a multitude of beneficial phytochemical and antioxidant compounds as well as minerals in the rhizomes. Plant this vigorous perennial crop for years of harvests.

Culture
This pungent, deep-rooted perennial is one of the easiest garden vegetables to grow. It prefers well-dug soil rich in organic matter. It also spreads easily, so you may want to isolate it. Apply 1-1 1/2 pounds of TSC's Complete fertilizer per 20 square feet. Mix the fertilizer into the top 3-4 inches of soil. Dig a shallow trench and place the roots in the trench horizontally, spacing them 1-2 feet apart and cover with 2 inches of soil. You'll harvest larger roots if the plants are kept well watered throughout the summer.

Insects & Diseases
None that we know of. Contact your county extension agent with specific questions.

Harvest & Storage
Dig the roots in the fall after the tops have frosted and replant some of the smaller roots. Harvest the larger roots for use in the kitchen. Store the harvested roots in the refrigerator in a plastic bag. Wash, trim, and grate. Add vinegar or lemon juice to keep the chopped root from turning brown.
