This is not an easy thing to do! I looked and looked and looked but to no avail. I even went as far as to order off the internet from crannogales fram or (crannogales.com) which have yet to be shipped. However, I was wondering through Dykhof Nurseries in North Van today and to my delight I stumbled upon Lupulus Nugget, A already big growing vine at that.

So thats where to go they only have 5 vines left.

In France it's the same thing... Very difficult to find hops... I bought in Germany but they had not many variety... And I search especially US variety...

I ordered two rhizomes from crannogales this spring. They have all the rhizomes dug up and they are being shipped this week.

I haven't yet either but I just planted them late Sunday afternoon though. When did your friend plant?

Good to hear that there are other homebrewers in Kelowna because I haven't met any yet!

I think he planted last Sunday. I think he said the centennial was the first one out of the ground.

We finally had a bit of sun in Vancouver and I have Nugget, Willamette and Cascade shoots poking out of the soil 11 days after planting. No sign of Mt Hood or the Centennial.

I see some of the earlier members have procured hops. I am very interested getting some, I need them for a home remedy. Please let me know if you have hops or know someone who does. Thanks
