As per the title does anyone have any experience/knowledge on how long a hop rhizome will last wrapped in a plastic bag in the fridge?
^ that's what I did, no problems at all - just don't store them too wet or they'll start to go mouldy.Just wrap them in newspaper and put them in the vegie crisper. They will last for a few months
If potting now/soon, what conditions would be preffered? ie, sun/rain protection until spring.^ that's what I did, no problems at all - just don't store them too wet or they'll start to go mouldy.
If putting them in pots there is no reason not to do it now, however if you were putting them in the ground (where it might get wet/flooded) it might be better to wait until spring is a bit closer.
I'm glad you said that. I just checked on mine and a couple of them are frozen up. Looks like there still may be hope for them....I kept my rhizomes from smurto in the veggie crisper, 2 of them were all frozed up when i eventually pulled them out - i think they spent about a month in there. No worries though, they survived that episode and made lots of hops
