Wait.





NO ONE has Rhisomes until the spring season when the yards do their pre-season prep.

At most, you might find some non descript seed in a catalog, somewhere.

What's the freakin rush? It's winter ya' know.

Hop rhizomes are generally sold during a narrow window in the spring.

If you *have* to find some now, search the net for groups that share/swap hop rhizomes.
Perhaps you can find someone moving their plants who will divide and share.

A lot of places where hops grow can't sell them until the ground has thawed, in march or so.

What's your location? I have a couple of 1g pots with Cascade or Willamette rhizomes currently dormant. If you're near you're welcome to them...

If you think getting a start on the growing season will help by growing indoors, it won't. Hops grow with the hours of sun they get. As the days get longer they grow in their vegetative cycle. After the summer solstice is when they start flowering. Hops also need 8 weeks of cold temperatures for their dormant period.

I can understand wanting to get your oder in now. Two years ago I wanted hops and I could not find anyone to take my order. When the season opened up I was slammed at work and totally forgot until they were sold out.

Early this year (2009) I pre-ordered with Thyme Garden, the only place I could find that would accept orders in the off season. Once the season opened up my rhizomes arrived.

Heya Glen,
Has there been any testing with Summit here? I want to try planting some this year, just curious if you or CSU has tried summit. Also did you find a way to malt all that barley you had? My malting season is coming up soon and I'll be working on my latest device (Continuous rotating, steeping/sprouting/growing/drying/kilning/smoking/crystalling/roasting, etc . . . . . malt bin) Should be able to do appx. 300lbs at a time.
Vern.
