Centennial - SPRING PRE-ORDER - COMPLETE CROWN
$8.78

Subtotal: $45.91
Tax: $0.00
Shipping & Handling: $10.99
Grand Total: $56.90
Has anyone had crowns vs rhizomes for over a year? I bought 4 rhizomes for $23 shipped, which would have been $50 as crowns. Is the difference worth it?

got my six plants this week, one of the cascades had a massive root ball, worth at least several rhizomes alone. They are now planted and coping with the change.

Is there a website? Or is it only through email?

Although it is reputed as a bittering hop, I used my Newports for aroma and flavoring last year and was thrilled with the results. Your lucky dog was, if I understand correctly, bred by Rogue Brewing Co. to resist mildew and disease. I have not had much luck researching it beyond that, except to read that some brewers find the flavor Newport imparts to be akin to cannabis (not sure I agree).

Just posted this in another thread. This is the response I got in case anyone else was wondering from Lynn at GLH.
<greatlakeshops@gmail.com> wrote:

Steve,
Treat them as 2nd year plants- but wait to do any trimming until you
get all the primaries running up the twine a good 6 to 8 feet. Leaving
the smaller bines a little longer can help "push" the primaries up by
supplying more energy to the forming root system. (You just want to
keep the base of the plants cleaned up so you don't create spidermite
havens.) The hybrids will probably push more than 3 or 4 primaries -
limit them to about 6-8 bines this season. If you train more than 3-4
on a string they tend to get so thick that bugs and mildews can become
an issue. I run two strings per hop plant the first year.
Cheers!

Lynn is supper helpful. I've sent probably 6 emails to him with a quick informative response every time.
