Just ordered my rhizomes

(1/1)

gmac:
You've all inspired me to order some rhizomes.  I ordered 4 Centennial, 4 Fuggle and 4 Magnum from Left Fields Hop Farms out in BC.  We shall have to see how things go but after reading Denny's comment about 1 plant, I'm thinking perhaps I was a bit ambitious. 

Can't wait to start harvesting my non-dry, non-stale hop cones ('cause I don't want to get caught up in the wet/fresh debate).

I wish you luck, Graham.

They're actually pretty easy to contain as long as you pay attention.  You can give them 2-3 years in the ground and then just dig the whole crown up, prune and plunk it back.  If you let them go any more than about 3 years you'll probably need like a 12 pack for the whole job.  It's all about being outside and homegrown, nothing like it!  Hop On!

Growing them is the easy part.  Processing and packaging is when the work starts.
