Perfect Growing Conditions
I was researching how to grow my new Japanese Horseradish (Wasabi) plant and did some research online. Growing conditions are similar to that of watercress, ie in shaded running water by a stream. The best I came up with here is putting the pot in a bucket under a dripping tap on a North facing wall. Looks to be thriving!
I was born 20 yards from our allotment. My parents used to 'dig for victory' and never got out of the habit. I grew up on an allotment, so growing veggies is a way of life. I am also qualified as a dog behaviourist and I have set up my own business, www.blackdogdna.com
