That seems a little excessive.

Freshops tends to have lower prices and a better selection, but it does vary from year to year. As a side note, the only sources of hop rhizomes in the US are WA, OR, ID. Ordering from a business in one of those states will mean less handling and time out of the ground.

Freshops has yet to post prices and availability this year.

I rather pay a couple of $ extra and get something fresh and viable. You are rignt David and less time out of the ground means the rhizomes are more likely to be viable.

Last year I planted some rhizomes that did nothing. I don't want to do all that work for nothing again just to try saving a couple of $.

I might order from Freshops too.

I also anticipate a large number of people ordering rhizomes this year because of the price increase of hop cones. So getting the best deal was not high on my priority list.

I was going to order from Hops Direct, but my LHBS beat their price by half, so they are getting the business.
