If you have rhizomes you want to trade post what you've got, what you want, and what zone you're in to establish when you can plant/dig up rhizomes.

What I have:
Sterling 6-9% alpha
"A Saaz hybrid released in 1998 that displays similar noble aroma and oil composition to the Czech variety, good yield and moderately resistant to Downy Mildew, generally considered a favorable Saaz replacement. Mid-season maturity. " - freshops.com

Zone 5

What I want:
Something with supper high AA's, like magnum
2 or 3 aroma verities

Please do not ship to Washington, Oregon, or Idaho without first verifying the receiver is outside of current quarantine designated areas or by checking the state's department of agriculture and USDA sites to confirm.

Good idea!

I only have two mature plants to take rhizomes from- I have cascades and hallertauer.

I'm in zone 3/4 so the ground is frozen until about mid-April or later.

I could use more centennial (rhizomes apparently are DOA).

I will be trimming 14 plants first thing this spring. I have no idea how many rhizomes I will end up having. I may simply post in the Classifieds section since I really won't be wanting any in return. This is a good thread to start these days though. Gets me thinking about warmer weather and garden planning!

I won't have rhizomes this year, but next year I will for sure! On another note I had good luck dropping some healthy Hallertau shoots in the ground midway through the season, they climbed around 8' up my twine so this is another way to propagate your hops.

Very good idea. I don't think I'm ready to swap out the rhizomes I planted last year (maybe next year), but I'd be willing to buy one off someone.

I have three plants I am harvesting Rhizomes from;


I would love to have three more Rhizomes from any other plant! I am in Zone 10 I think, if the little pink splotch on your chart is representing the S.F. Bay Area?

Great Idea !!!! I just traded some Rhizome for some Home Brew!

I'm looking to establish a hops garden this year so I have none to swap. Would be looking to buy from anyone who has any extras.
