Hey I know it's late in the season but I really wanna plant some hops to run along my fence.

Does anyone know where I can get some rhizomes even though its not the beginning of the season?

If you know anyone who has hops in your area, you *could* snag a few shoots or roots. They are pretty hard to kill. I've laid a bine under about 1" of dirt and a few days later it was sprouting roots under each leaf. Each one of those locations will be a new plant. I'm planning on starting a few plants that way very soon. Too bad you did not live closer, you could come over and get some cuttings or dig up a bit of root.

Yeah, I'd post a request in classifieds or something in the hope that someone here might be both local and helpful to you. I doubt you will find them commercially, but even getting something started this late should help you along greatly for next year. Good luck!

awesome, thanks for the ideas. I also saw some seeds, but I heard that was a bad idea. Thanks again

Seeds work, but really not the fastest, best way to do it. I trimmed around my hops this weekend and DAMN are they getting bushy at the bottom! I seriously need to get rid of a bunch of the small ones growing out all over.

Now that I've grown then for 2 years I can see where I should plant 2 more locations.
