I will be moving somewhat soon and will need to get rid of all but my cascade crowns. I have Willamette, Fuggle, Centennial, Hallertau available. You could pull a lot of rhizomes off for many plants or pull the whole crown for a plant that should give you a harvest this year.

You'll need to dig them up. I live in the far Northwest suburbs (Dundee, Il)

Hey Mike! I am free on Sunday, picking up a shed in the afternoon so I'll be back here by evening. I also have a response on craigslist so I need to make sure he gets some plants too. You interested in any particular ones? Oh and I drink stouts or IPAs generally

unclephilly, i'm not planning on digging or shipping these out, local only
