I had a terrible experience last year attempting to grow hops. I bought
some cuttings from an outfit in Oregon and when they arrived by UPS
ground I immediately opened the box and stuck them in the ground. They
looked kind of dried out and I was not relaxing. I waited weeks and
nothing. I finally dug them up and all four were dead.

Anybody know of a place on the east coast where I could buy some
cuttings so that they would not have as much a chance of drying out
before I get them? Anybody want to sell me some cuttings of their own?

It's either that or try the same place again (they promised to "take care
of me" because of what happened last year) except maybe have them next
day air them at great expense.
