I'm pineing for a hops plant, but have put off
ordering from a catalog because I am afraid that
they'll send a male! Need I worry about that??

From the article
Quoting:The rhizomes of the female hop plant produce the flowers... Male plants are not as attractive and are not necessary to get flowers.

I got my hops plant from Companion Plants...they're great to deal with. Mine was slow the first year it was planted but this second year has taken off and grown like crazy! It's loaded with blossoms now and I'm looking forward to a big harvest to make lots of hops pillows with!

Thanks, good to know! I just planted one I purchased locally (almost) from a herb farm. In the several days it has been in the ground, it has doubled in new growth.
