Default Rhizomes are in!

Got my hops rhizomes yesterday, going to plant today.
Can't wait!
I don't expect much yield in the first year but it will still be cool to say I grew the hops that went in my beer. If these work out I'm going to do more varieties in the future. Especially once I buy my own house.

Got mine yesterday, too! Two each, Cascade, Nugget & Willamette and I'm really pumped! Still too much of a chance for frost here in Northern Illinois, so I've got them in the fridge for right now. Probably have to wait another 3-4 weeks to plant.

Dude, that's not Mount Hood.

You got ripped off.

Sorry, that's gotta be either cascade or rhododendron.

How can you tell just by looking at the root?

So once you buy the Rhizomes, do you just plant it like a seed by fully burying it, or do you treat it like a cutting and leave part of it exposed?

Kind of interested in grwoing them, but need more info.

In my experience, you bury the rhizome and within a year or two you can't kill the things. The only trick is having some lines strung for them to grow up, and they need to be trained along those lines...first straight up about 8 feet and then out horizontally...

Also, they only can be trained to coil around the line clockwise...strange but true. Maybe it's different in the southern hemisphere.

I would urge all of you potential hop growers out there (like me ) to get your hands on a copy of the current March-April 2005 issue of Brew Your Own . It’s all about hops and there’s some great stuff about growing your own hops. I‘d also recommend reading the information on Hop Gardening at the Freshops website. I bought my rhizomes, as well as some leaf hops, from them. Their service was top-notch!
