I've been a bit slack over the past couple of months and kept putting off buying them now the brew shops dont stock them anymore :(
So yeah i live in sydney and am looking for a quality rhizome prefferably not POR so if anyone wants to get rid of one let me know what you've got and what price your after.

Cheers, :beerbang:

Colin Marshall at my local HBS (Brew Your Own at Home) in Canberra has them. Im sure he would be more than pleased to sell you some and post them to you.....no affiliation blah blah blah.....just helping out a fellow hop grower.
Cheers

Colin's list of rhizomes (as of 5 Aug) looked like this:
5 x Pride of Ringwood - locally grown and best suited to Australian
conditions, at $5.00 each
1 x Goldings $25
1 x Hallertau $25
1 x Tardiff de Bourgogne $25
1 x Cluster $25
1 x Precoce de Bourgogne $25
1 x Chinook $25

...I grabbed the Chinook to sit alongside my 2 year old Goldings!
Colin's number is 02 6296 1412

Cheers,

Hopsta,
His rhizomes look reasonably cheap - I'd be interested to know how he packages the rhizome for mailing, once it arrives?

I have quite a few POR, tettnang and hallertau plants going in the glasshouse already, and could easily send either small plants or rhizome sections in the mail. I'm going to pot up some pearle, cluster and hersbrucker rhizomes this weekend. I'd rather swap for varieties I don't have but if you're keen I could sell you some.

POR is worth growing as it seems to grow much better than other varieties and yield more. I have been negative toward POR in the past but if fresh it is a very good hop.

Hopsta,
Mark packages the hops very well, the rhyzomes are wrapped in wet moss, then wrapped in several layers of damp newspaper in a plastic bag. He also sent detailed growing instructions and a hop description.
Good value for money.

Cheers
Andrew

If possible I'd definitely be interested in purchasing some hersbrucker and tettnang rhizomes or small plants off you. Where abouts are you located?

I'm in country NSW and have a bit of space to grow hops, which is why I've split my rhizomes for this season --> to have more plants. I won't know about hers until the weekend as a friend grows it but I could spare a tett. PM if interested.
