I ordered 3 of each Sterling and Cascade rhizomes; 1 of each to survived. Based on the way the rhizomes looked when they arrived, the survival rate was about what I expected. The two plants that are coming up look nice, I just wish it was 6 instead of 2. That's the only reason for the 3 star review...I'll plan to order more, and earlier, next year and hope for better results.
So far so good, the rhizomes are taking off like a weed....looking forward to a harvest in a few momths
I got my big healthy looking roots and put them in the ground. My hop plants from last year are beginning to emerge so I am encouraged. These rhizomes were fairly large and health looking so many thanks.
