    The root of this vegetable is delicious when grated and used in association with roast beef or fish. It is easy to grow and has a very strong flavour. Care should be taken preparing the root though as the pungent fumes can cause irritation to the eyes. Great stuff for clearing the sinuses!

  • Garden care: Best planted in early spring into 15cm deep holes which are spaced at 60cm intervals. To stop it getting out of hand (it can become invasive), you should lift all the plants in October after the first frost. You can store the roots in sand, using the larger ones in the kitchen, and replanting the smaller ones the following spring. Alternatively you can grow it in a deep container filled with John Innes No 2 compost.

    Vegetable suggestions for a shady veg. garden!

      Hello There, I'm afraid you will have trouble getting a bumper yield of any of the edible crops if the bed receives little sun, as most of them need full sun. Ones that tolerate some shade include radish, potato, borage, horseradish, blueberry, blackberry and tayberry - all the others will flourish in the sun. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
