A friend of mine is moving and asked me if I wanted some free rhizomes from his Sterling and Centennial plants. I said yes without even thinking about it, of course. Now I'm wondering what to do with them until the spring when I can put them in the ground. I had pretty good luck with my Columbus (3oz dried) and Galena (just a few cones but healthy plant) in their first year this year, so I'm excited to add some flavor hops to the garden.
I'm in Minnesota, and it's about to get wicked cold here, so can I pot them and keep them alive until the spring? Is there anything else I can do to ensure healthy plants next year? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
