Short answer no
All propriety hops so only grown on the farms that sell them.
Also you about 3 months early for rhizomes

Sorry mate, I'm new to the site so my nav skills are a little sketchy, I couldn't remember which thread I asked that under.

Thansk for the feedback. Shame as pretty keen to grow these ones.

Dont we all ;)

Searching. You can either go to "your profile" and search under "My Content / only posts" for retracing your steps or look just under the advertising at the top of the page click on the "Forums" Button and change it to Google and then use that search function.

Cheers.

BTW, in answer to your next question, (sourcable) Rhizomes become available about winter sometime, keep an eye on the forums and you will get your hands on some..

I am actually thinking of putting some dwarf rhizomes up for grabs right now, as well as maybe some Vics. They're are in large nursery bags that hold 15 litres of soil. Don't know where the OP is located.

Tell me, how does that relate to the OP? Which cultivars are you offloading?

Well he appeared to be interested in rhizomes generally despite the fact he wasn't able to source his preferred varieties. I'll probably offer my dwarfs and some Vics later tonight.

If your soil is lacking spog, mix in some mineral rich clay and lots of manure and remember to water them regularly and you should be good to go.

if i remember correctly the reply on the radio from the gardening guru was that here where i live we don't get the cold nights and the daytime temps can get too high at times which affect the hop bines and stress them too much?
believe me i tried but it did'nt work. once i planted the rhizomes i did all i could to make them grow ,keen as mustard,(like a dog with 2 dicks,did'nt know which one to lick first :huh: ).but it did'nt happen...bugga..cheers...spog....

Another (non posting) Lincoln member is successfully growing a couple of bines. Not very tall, but didn't get much water early in the growing season. Kirton Point area - heavy limestone.
I lived very close to him a few years back and tried growing one, but on the northern side of a corro iron fence in sandy soil and didn't water often. I imagine they might grow well up here in the hills - colder nights, but also warmer days, so might need shade. Don't know if I'll try this year, but definitely the year after.
