Background Information

Left Fields Rhizomes

Hops Rhizomes are sections of the plant’s underground stem which put out both sprouts and roots. We ensure that there are at least two bud nodes per rhizome we ship. They are shipped bare-root, packed in moist peat moss to preserve viability. Ideally, hops rhizomes should look very dormant when they arrive, or with only very small shoots visible – this ensures that all their energy is waiting for them to get in the ground.

Our hops are dug in April, and shipped as early as possible in April through May. More background info on hops.

We would like to thank Hopslist and Hopunion for their excellent analysis of hops varieties, and we encourage you to use their sites for your own research.

Rhizome sales are now open for 2023. Pre-order now to assure fulfillment. Hops are dug in early spring and shipped mid-April through mid-May.
