Rhizomes

Postby texranger69 » Mon Mar 24, 2008 5:17 pm

Anybody know of some good places to by rhizomes in the STL area or quality web dealer?

Also, any good websites or books on growing your own hops? I am thinking of trying to grow a variety or 2 and expand if all goes well in a few years.

I bought 6 varieties from freshops.com. Great prices and speedy shipping. I haven't planted them quite yet but they look like they are in great shape. Also their website has alot of great info on growing them.

I'll second Freshops.com. Ordered 3 rhizomes from them, got them in a week or so.

A Third for Freshops. Ordered 2 over the weekend, and am expecting them sometime this week.

I was just in and they were out of one or two of those, IIRC, but were planning on ordering more. I assume if you call in an order they would reserve what you want out of the next order.

I noticed last night my Cascade and one Chinook have both popped back up (pretty healthy looking too), but no sign of the Glacier yet.

Got them in the ground

Postby texranger69 » Mon Apr 07, 2008 1:20 pm

Well, I received my rhizomes from FreshHops and planted them this weekend (Cascade, Willamette, Hallertauer, Kent Golding and Northern Brewer). All looked great except the Hallertauer, looked like a stick from my yard. Hopefully it'll grow. The Cascade that they sent me was a huge clump that looked really healthy. I put 2 in th eold grape arbor and the other 3 along the South side of the house. Next step is build some sort of trellis for the side of the house and wait for the harvest.

Poppin' up

Postby texranger69 » Thu Apr 24, 2008 9:48 pm

Well 3 outa 5 have popped up. N. Brewer and Kent Golding are three inches each and Willamette about 2 inches. Hallertauer maybe peeking out, but my Cascade hasn't done squat yet.
