Q: Hi, Planning my first hop bed and I'm not certain how much to order. What is the recommended distance between hop plants? Does is vary with the variety? Thanks!
A: The plants should be planted about 3-4 feet apart, and different varieties would need at least 6 feet of space as to not interlace the roots

Q: What disease resistance does your Centennial Hops have? I planted Centennial Hops about 20 years ago and they had very poor disease and fungal resistance. I understand that new disease and fungal resistant rhizomes are now available. Are the Centennial Hops you are selling the new more disease resistant variety? And what fungi and diseases are they listed as resistant to?
A: Rhizomes now sold should be better suited for disease resistance, but can be prone to downy mildew and mold if not given the proper conditions. While we do not have a certificate or documentation of their resistance, this has been a common practice throughout the industry in years of late due to the higher demand for the hops in the craft beer industry

Q: i appreciate this is a plant and every rhizome may different so this may be difficult to answer, but about how much yield in ounces can you expect per rhizome? A half ounce, an ounce, 5 ounces... Thanks
A: Like many other fruit bearing plants, the cone and output will vary based on seasonal conditions growing conditions and maturity of the plant. The rhizomes will have their best output and maturity within 3-5 years. Some cone produect can be expected the first few years but will be a lower yeild. There is not a great benchmark for actual production pre plant.
Q: When can you ship? I'm ready to plant now.
A: Delivery should begin in April, and we will call when ready if picking up.
Q: Do deer eat hop bines?
Q: I am wanting to order 3 different rhizomes and 2 of each. I was wanting to add ice packs. How many would you suggest? I clicked the add ice pack and then changed quantity of rhizomes to 2. The price reflects 6 ice packs, and I think I would not need that many.
A: One ice pack is sufficient for several rhizomes. One ice pack should be sufficient for six rhizomes. You can add the ice packs ala carte so you only purchase as many as you would like.
Q: How many rhizomes come with each $5.99 order. The picture shows 4, is this how many you get for $5.99?

Q: Is there any way to tell if a hops rhizome will produce a male out female vine prior to planting?
