n when I planted it in edge of house yard I dug down 2 -3 ft and made a plank lining in ground and it stayed inside. up on hill it is free to wander but just keep taking outside roots to contain it

Below is a link to Shumways for Horseradish roots.

Be darn sure you don't care about anything near where you are going to plant them as in a few years they will choke out whatever is near.
Horseradish is a weed here.
All through the lawns of most houses over 100 years old...

How would it do in containers?

Ya know...It never occured to me to even try it.
I know that here the roots are easily within the frost line and the dirt around them gets frozen solid most years, so it may do OK in pots.
Here it is such a weed that I just never thought of it.
Part of the 'fun' of it is that it spreads itself without much, if any, effort, so a container may not be the best for perpetual harvesting.

Oh yeah!..According to me Dearly Departed Gram, you pull and process in the fall for the mildest 'bite' and most sweetness, and you pull and process in the Spring for that white-hot flavour that goes so well in a Bloody Mary ;-)

If you grind in the Spring, may I suggest doing so outdoors with an old Griswold meat grinder while running a hose through the grinder and catch the HR in a seive.
Dump the grated HR into a Mason jar and pack loosely. Cover with cider vinegar and cap.
Keeps literally forever and will retain that white hot bite, and goes sooo well with darn near everything.

Just used the last jar of the last lot that my Gram oversaw in the spring of 85 at Thanksgiving.

Brought tears to my eyes in more ways than one...
