Default Just got my hops starters yesterday!

Just received yesterday:

  • Galena (2)
  • Zeus (2)
  • Ultra (2)
  • Cascade (2)
  • Redvine (2)
  • Hallertauer (2)

Looking forward to watching them grow. Hopefully San Diego has the kind of weather they're looking for.

Hops do well in San Diego, at least for the homebrewer. You can put them in the ground immediately, but don't expect a lot of growth until the Spring. They may or may not die back, depends on the temperatures. Make certain you have correct and durable labels for the plants, so you don't join the 'can anyone identify these hops' group next Fall.

Yeah, I'd like to know too. I thought sales were done until the spring.

I bought 10 rhizomes and only 4 actually grew (Of the 6 duds, 2 sprouted and 4 never did at all).

I'd love to get something in the ground now just to try and get some roots established before the 2012 season.

Rhizomes will have to wait until next Spring but you can get the plants here: http://www.facebook.com/GreatLakesHops?sk=info . He posts on here from time to time (Jagdad).

There are 3 places I know of that sell Plants (NOT Rhizomes). Great Lakes Hops(Michigan), Summit Labs(Colorado), And High Hops (Colorado?
I can't speak for the other guys, but GLH produces certified stock year around. GLH is in the Vendor List of Homebrewtalk.

Do you plant them outside now or plant them indoors until next spring?

I guess that depends if you live in Alaska or Alabama. Here in Michigan, we plant Hops outside right through Mid-late October. They set roots underground even though they don't look like they are doing much above the ground. I don't recommend trying to grow hops all winter indoors in pots; especially when they are perfectly happy outside under a blanket of snow. If you think it is too late in your area; wait til spring. Do all your soil prep now

I got them from High Hops. I just put them into bigger containers (labeled) in my backyard just until I clear out some brush and figure out where exactly I'm going to put them in the ground at. Probably going to have to get some trees removed first :/
