Cultivate Your Own Wasabi Plants
Congratulations on acquiring your Wasabi Plants-Set of 3, nurtured on the lush island of Ireland. These plants will be dispatched to you via Ireland Express or Royal Mail. Upon arrival, immediately pot each wasabi plant in a container containing at least 9 litres and drainage holes. Start by placing a layer of pea shingle at the base to ensure efficient drainage. Then, add a fertile mix of soil and compost to foster strong root growth.

Placing the plants in an area shielded from direct sunlight is essential, providing abundant shade indoors or outdoors. While wasabi prefers moist conditions, avoid overwatering to prevent waterlogging. Ensure the crown of each plant remains just above the soil level, promoting healthy growth of leaves and stems.

All parts of the wasabi plant are edible, yielding spicy rhizomes and flavorful leaves and stems. In Japan, wasabi grows naturally under tree canopies by mountain streams, away from direct sunlight. Replicate these conditions by planting in a shaded garden spot near a fence, under trees, or by a pond.

For indoor cultivation of your Wasabi Plants-Set of 3, maintain moist soil and feed the plants with mild plant food such as diluted seaweed extract. The plants can grow quite large, producing leaves and stems up to about 50 cm, so ensure sufficient spacing between them.

As the plants grow, they will develop a rhizome. Wasabi is hardy to -5ºC; however, to protect it from frost, use fleece covers during very cold nights.

Important Information Regarding Wasabi Plants
Please be aware that our wasabi plants are delivered as a bolus—a ball of soil or similar medium that keeps the roots moist and protected until they are transplanted into your preferred setting.
