Default Great Lakes Hops

Just placed an order for 8 crowns from Great Lakes Hops. I have read previous threads from folks here on HBT, and they seem pretty legit. I live just outside Minneapolis, MN. Any advice from a fellow MN hop grower would be great.

Recieved my order a few days agao, got them potted last night (still waiting for snow to melt in MN). I ordered 7 crowns - 3-Columbus 3-Glacier & 1-Nugget. They threw in an extra "Lucky Dog" crown of the Crystal variety.

yeah, WAY bigger than I expected. What did they give you for your "Lucky Dog?"

Chinook, I ordered Magnum, Glacier and US Golding. I'll definitely order from them again when I decide to expand the garden.

Just had mine delivered hours ago, just planted them. I ordered a Centennial crown and they sent me a free Fuggles crown. Cool!
