just received mine this morning. sent out on wednesday, here on friday. the centennial and sterling are especially healthy, over a foot high (including roots). i put in a last-minute request to swap out the spalt select for a cascade which they did for me. this is a nice bonus, considering how many orders they must be filling right now. thank you GLH!



bonus: packing material appears to be rice hulls. i'm not an AG brewer, but next time i add wheat or oatmeal to my partial mash i'll have some hulls to throw in there

i am such a ditz.

count my order, as detailed in my previous post (with prices).

then count the crowns in the pic above.

GLH sent me a free crown!!!

it even had plant marker that said "Lucky dog! Free!", but it still didn't register until my last reply... d'oh.

this is slightly problematic as I only planned on having 5 plants... but this is a good problem to have

That's funny. I would have liked to have the same problem. Got my 8 crowns 2 weeks ago and one of the cascades has 2 bones over 2'. :rockin

Did they tell you what variety the free crown was?

I picked up a Centennial and a Sterling crown from them and planted them about 3 weeks ago. They are almost 4 feet tall already since we decided to skip spring and go straight to summer this year!

I stopped there Thursday night and he gave me an hour tour of the place. I bought three of the huge crowns that are too big for shipping and he proceeded to take me out to pick a free plant. I spent another 15 minutes with him explaining all the choices. I was very pleased!

yup, the "lucky dog" was a newport. so i now have 3 high-alpha/bittering hops, 3 aroma/flavor hops, and one in-between (i ordered summit rhizomes from Willamette Valley Hops) . nice mix, IMHO. now to see which of the pack do best in the maryland summer...
