Default best place to purchase hops?

Where should I buy hops from? Also should I buy seeds or buy the plants themselves?

Personally I buy mine from

http://www.hopsdirect.com/

As far as your second question, are you thinking about growing hops? If so you'll want to by rhizomes, but those are usually in abundance during the early spring. That's the time to plant them and from what I understand your first years yield will be low. But as plant grows the yield will get larger each year.

+1 on HopsDirect. As for rhizomes (hop root), they'll be available next spring to order.
