I bought some last year and just pot planted them. There are two williamette and two cascade. I put mulch on top of the pots before winter so they should be ok. If anybody wants then they can have them.

They do enjoy fences! I have ours at the base of the deck, so they get a good 9 feet of trellis, after that, they just climb all over the railing.

I think we've ordered hops the past 3 years now. Last year the group ordered over 100 rhizomes total! That's why I figured there probably wouldn't be much of an order this year if at all.

That being said, if anyone has hop plants that are over 3 years old, you can harvest rhizomes from them. So, if you want to share/sell them, once you can get through the ground of coarse, feel free to post and share here.

I gotta do a little plug for a brewer up in Hatton, ND. If you have hops returning and you want a nice way to mark them , check out hopmarkers.com.

I didn't realize there may be a group order; I ordered two Centennial rhizomes from Midwest. Mulling over possible locations in the backyard. Rather than going forty feet up, I'll run them along a fence.

Is there enough interest to do a hop rhizome order this year? Does anyone have rhizomes they want to clip from existing plant's to share?

We had really big orders the last few years, so I would imagine that there's probably not going to be many people ordering this year... unless we're all really bad gardeners. Anyways, unless there's a resounding response to ordering group rhizomes, we'll probably pass. I will however list some places we've ordered with before, as many of them are already taking pre-orders.

Arrowhead Hops
Midwest Supplies
Northern Brewer
MoreBeer
The Grape and Granary


A few things to note before you order rhizomes:

  • Have a suitable location, with trellis and a good amount of water and sun.
  • They grow quick and spread wide.
  • Once they are established in a location, don't plan on moving them.
  • They come back every year and can have productive lifespans of over 60 years.
  • Once dried, the cones are great to use in homebrew.
  • The vines should be cut down to the ground every fall.
  • Hop vines are very pretty, and smell wonderful, they are a little scratchy, so try to keep them away from areas that you
  • might brush up against or where kids play.
  • Hops are poisonous to dogs. If you've got a dog that's a chewer or a digger, make sure they can't get into your hop vines.
