Default Is it too late to get rhizomes and plant in Kentucky?

Am I too late to get hops and plant them. Here in Kentucky everything is getting put in the ground late. If it is not too late, where can I get them? Specifically cascade and liberty or mt. hood. Beer and Wine Hobby, The Beer Essentials , Midwest Homebrewing, and Freshops are out or they dont list these types.

I don't think you'll have any luck finding rhizomes this late in the season. Most are sold out in March, sometimes available in April.

there are a few on ebay, but the prices are pretty darn steep.

If you want to pay out the nose, there are some places that have them:

Personally, if you can't find them at a reasonable price, I'd just wait and do it next year.

if you're in northern ky you could drive up to dayton and buy your rhizomes at belmont party supply. i was there yesterday and they still have a bunch of rhizomes in the back cooler. Not sure what varieties but you could call and ask. http://schwartzbeer.com/

Thanks for the responses. I went ahead and got some different types from freshops. I really couldnt beat their price. Now I just hope this weekend isnt too late to get them in the ground. Thanks again!

You should be fine. As long as they develop into a full plant all is good. They will go through the process of dormancy once they get frost and in the Spring you should have good growth. Iirc, my Brewer's Gold went into the ground very late last year, I think it was early summer. They didn't do much, but this season were up and running as soon as the thaw hit.
