You cannot go wrong with Great Lake's hops...they provide the best mail ordered plant material that I have ever received and are very accessable online and they offer helpful information to all growers.

I have purchased 100 from High Hops and 100 from Great lakes, they have all went into shock, not sure if its the elevation of 5600' or the shipping time. But the hops from Great Lakes look to be recovering a little better. And they are interested in there progress to make sure they will recover. I thought that was awesome.

I received 3 chinook crowns from Great Lakes Hops. They have huge roots already started. I've been taking really good care of them, read the suggustions that came with the plants. The leaves never even turned yellow; the instructions said some yellowing is normal. I would recommend GLH...

New to this. Are rhizomes that hard to get started growing, they are half price of crowns.

Not at all, but when you plant a rhizome it has to expend energy in both directions by developing roots and shoots. The crown usually has some roots developed so it can spend more energy on the shoots which usually equates to a guaranteed harvest in your first year. If you have the money available and are an impatient person, buy the crowns. If not, save a few bucks and get the rhizomes.

Wow. Already sprouts. Didn't think GA weather had been that much different then TN. Make sure you cover em when it frost over again. I hope mine don't come up till April. Last year was a pain in the ass baby sitting over the frost.
