Has anyone found a source for brambling cross rhizomes? If you currently grow them, will you share? A small fee and cost of shipping is understood.

Thanks

Ha! Not sure how to get these from USDA. I read a couple post about people who object to others getting rhizomes from the usda.

I've been trying to find a Bramling Cross rhizome for years.

It's even getting hard to find the hops... many vendors are still selling the 2010 crop!

Yeah, I read some cranky posts about the USDA thing. I say if that's the only way to lay hands on this strain, do what ya have to do.

As for availability, after reading that totally sobering listing I'm not surprised. Seems like that strain has a fundamental genetic issue with simply surviving...

Cheers!

I asked the USDA for some native hop varieties from Colorado and they never responded to me. I don't know of any commercial sources for native North American hop varieties. Is the USDA sending anybody rhizomes?

I would say good luck with getting them to give you Brambling Cross. You might have luck trying to buy it from England if it is a popular variety.

Thanks for the sites. I did see these, but upon further inspection,they won't ship to the USA. One site does ship but a permit for imports is needed. A permit would cost around $90.00. Just too much to pay.

Has anyone had any luck buying rhizomes from the UK (without paying for a permit) to ship to the USA?
