I was looking for a source for hop rhizomes in Canada (just to
avoid the hassle of having them shipped across the border, and
the delays that that would bring). I'm in Ottawa - does anyone
have any information about local sources?

You must be at 39 degrees if you can plant things in March. We
still have 18 inches of snow on the ground here. I would
appreciate hearing from any northern hop growers about how to
grow hops around here.

Email please, as I am off skiing for a week in Whistler, and might
have to (shudder) delete the HBDs unread if I get too much work
related email.
