I recently built a trellis in my garden---it's three 4x4x12 posts with steel cable string between them---and I figure, why not get some hop plants to climb them next year. Does anyone know a good place to find plantable hop seeds?

search "rhizome" -- you'll get a few hits with a lot of information about people's homegrown hops...

You may be hard pressed to find seeds. I think the Rhizomes are what you really want. It's probably alot easier to get the rhizomes to grow, as opposed to germinating seeds, unless your a horticulturist.

Right on. I saw something about planting with Rhizomes when I did a google search. So, anyone know where I can order rhizomes?

A lot of online brewing places have them for sale. Northern Brewer had them but sold out of them by April. They'll be selling them again:

You really don't want seeds, because you can't predict what the results will be. Much like apples. Rhyzomes are sections cut from known plants and they don't cost much.

HMMM....so you would get an entirely new strain of hops to brew with that no one else has!

No, you might get male plants which don't have cones on them...
