Too late to plant?

(1/1)

hellbound:
Is it too late to plant hop rhizomes? I was just getting ready to order some and thought, I wonder, so I'm asking? I have a brew-club meeting on Sunday and I suppose I could just ask them, but i'm not sure I'm going to be able to make it due to in-laws flying in tomorrow night.

brewmasternpb:
Now would be fine here in Colorado, but I'm not sure for your part of the world.  It probably couldn't hurt to get them rooted for next year.  There is a hop farm close to me that actually sells small hop plants in May, and you can plant them just like that.  Check to see if there's anything like that near you.

mtnrockhopper:
You probably won't get much yield this year anyway, but there is still plenty of growing time. Any headstart they get will help next year I'd think.

+1.  Plant ASAP for next year's harvest.  They need a year to take root.
