I just got an email from the fine people at Hopsdirect, and my order is already getting shipped out. I expected to have to wait at least till the end of the month, but the confirmation email I got today, says they are getting shipped out now, so YIPEEEEEE!!!!
. Last year I didn't get any till mid-April, so maybe my first years this year will be able to produce since they will have a longer growing season.
So if anyone is wanting rhizomes now, Hopsdirect is apparently ready to send them out.
