You want rhizomes, not seeds. Check out freshops, hopsdirect, the online suppliers or ask your LHBS

You'll need to get rhizomes, though I'm not aware of any sources in Canada. Try Freshops.com or HopsDirect.com.

There are also some vendors in our marketplace selling rhizomes at very good prices!

Buying rhizomes from a US supplier will probably require some kind of import certificate. Most suppliers won't bother. I know Freshops does, but it's $20 USD.

Hops do not breed true, so seeds could give you odd results. Plus, half of the plants would be male.
