DIY isn't digging their own rhizomes. They're reselling hops they're purchasing from other suppliers, similar to what other online retailers like midwest and northern brewer are doing. I don't know WHAT suppliers they are using so it's impossible to say if those suppliers should have been digging sooner than this.
Personally I haven't lost any sleep over it since we still have quite a bit of snow cover here... but I guess if you're in an area where it's time to plant it may be different for you.
