I ordered 5 hops rhizomes from Fresh Hops ... Cascade, Centennial, Wilamette, Chinook and Nugget... I chose these particular strains considering what might grow well here, similar conditions to the Pacific NW. I'm starting them inside for now, as soon as the cold frame is up they'll go outside. Eventually I'd like to plant them on the south facing front of the building, but they'll need a serious trellis since they can grow up to 25' in a season. If they grow well they can become stock plants eventually! Not to mention Rob and I can use them in some homebrew!

The rhizomes have little rootlet buds popping off all over the place! They are so ready to grow!
