Thanks much!

Our ground is frozen solid right now and Iím sure will be until mid march at best. So the late March/ early April time frame is the best we can do.

How do hop starts compare to rhizomes other then being an alive, sprouted plant? Do they typically produce more year one then rhizomes?

Brizzo:

Our hop starts have a nice developed root mass and we like to have multiple “breaks” or bines on each one usually around 6” or more long. As to how they compare to a rhizome pertaining to production I’ve had some produce several ounces year one and some produce a hand full or two of cones, but the same goes for rhizomes. It all really depends on quality of care, both are a good option.

Right now I’ve got Hop Start “Mini Farms” on the website. You should have the ability to order single plants in a week or so.
