Default hop source

Plan to grow hops next year (in Iowa). Looking for a source of cuttings. Have the usual seed catalogues, but wondering if any of you have a better source in mind. Also I have an ample supply of hay/straw so garden with a fairly thick mulch, which we like for moisture retention/weed control. Anyone know if hops do well if mulched?

Fresh Hops, Hop Direct, More Beer, etc...

Lots of places are selling hop rhisomes when they are in season. They just aren't in season yet. Look for them next March.
