Planting Horseradish for 2010 crop

Any shoot could be used, since the plant grows well with even a small piece. I chose a large chunk from the main shoot since the season is late. Usually I start the plant in a pot in July, but was away this year so am compromising. The pots will be dug up in early Spring, and planted in open ground with a square foot board under the plant to make digging easier. It is a bit wet or the procedure would be done now. The plant will form strong roots in the pot, since there is probably another month of reasonable growing left for this season. The plants could also be grown in the house to over-winter if desired. I treat the horseradish as an annual.
