I purchased some hops from Michael Matucheski and they worked out fine.
I happened to be in Antigo Wi during the bad weather. the last day we
were in town things warmed up and Micheal was able to dig mine up. All
of the rizomes had buds - the fuggles had a 4" sprout on it when I
planted it. I must admit, I didn't get around to planting until
almost a month after I recieved the rhizomes. They were in plastic
baggies at room temp. Perhaps that is why they were so vigorous?
I don't remember how thick they were. Something like my pinky and
about six inches long is what I remember. They all came up within a
month of planting. Also, Seattle has had *very* warm weather this spring.
Everything is early. A friend reported his hops already are forming flowers!

As an aside, the fuggles is most vigorous, the Cascades next and the
Hallertauer least vigorous. I presume next year things will even out after
they adapt to their new homes.
