I just bought my first horseradish root, but am going to plant it in a container. That's how my cousin does it, so that it won't take over the garden.

He has had success with his done that way. I think he just dumps it out at the end of the season, trims off the roots he needs and replants it.
I find horseradish root doesn't take over and it is easy to pull up if it appears. Two roots growing well make a lot of horseradish. I start the roots in a container, then plant in the Fall and sometimes in the early Spring. A container is sometimes difficult to keep the moisture level to a suitable level.
