Subject: Where can I get hop rhizomes from?
Date: 1992-03-24 14:24:00 GMT

I posted an article a couple of weeks ago, asking about rhizome
sources in Canada, and advice about growing hops in Canada.
Judging from my responses (zero), I'd guess that there are
not that many hop growers in my part of the country, and there
are no sources of hop rhizomes either.

So, I'll expand my search, and consider hop sources from the
US. Do any Canadians know what kind of restrictions there are
on bringing rhizomes into the country? And where can I get
them in the States?

Our growing season here is usually mid May to late September,
with a good amount of rain. Is this what hops require to grow?

I was planning on planting them on the south side of my house
where they can grow about 10 or 12 feet high. Is this enough?

I assume that the wild rabbits around my house would eat them
in a flash (just like the rest of my garden).

All advice will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Joel
