I know I am responding to an old topic, however, PLEASE do not plant this in public places, especially where horses have access as it is toxic to them and other pets.  I am interested if anyone has any success containing horsetail in a container garden without it taking over their entire life?

That seems an over reaction?  It's already everwhere, or at least anywhere there is muck and gently moving water.

Animals already have abundant opportunity to eat the stuff.

And, as long as conditions aren't muck like damp, it won't be that aggressive.

Here in Southern California it's a frequently used as a decorative plant, and doesn't seem to spread beyond where people put it.

I would think that luthiers, growing patches of this plant for themselves, aren't of grave concern to horse owners or pastures.

However, like most plants, I don't see why it wouldn't grow in a container, if that container was maintained with the needs of the plant in mind.
