Won't be too much longer and the nugget bine will be ready to start on the rope... the fuggles will be a little behind. The growth pattern looks a little different... the nugget has one bine that's shot up with three really small ones just now starting to sprout leaves while the fuggles grew several shoots but aren't as tall as the nugget. Dunno if this is typical for these types of hops, just an observation. I'm just tickled to have green-age..!

Also noticed that the leaves are quite different. The fuggles is more of an oval, single leaf while the nugget has a tri-lobed (mapleleaf-like) look...

Fuggles....


Nugget...

Is that spot you've done up for one plant or both? That's kind of close to be planting two varieties. They will tangle together something awful, which makes keeping them seperate during harvest a bit of a pain. Besides, once they reach maturity, you want two strings per crown with 2-3 bines per string.

I wanted to share some picks o my set up.

I built an adjustable trellis out of some planks twine and eye hooks. I have three varieties cascade (1st year rhizome) Hallertau (2nd year crown) and fuggles (2nd year crown).

The Hallertau is taking off well, the fuggles alittle slower and the cascade just has a single small sprout.

I am anxious to see how well these bad boys take off. I just gave them some dilute fertilizer.

Looking healthy! I'm hoping you cut the bottoms out of those tubs...

Cut the bottoms out? Naw, I drilled a bunch of holes in the bottom and side. I am in medical school so when I move to residency I'd like to take my plants with me. I figure I should get a few good years out of the tubs as they are 40 gallons. If I have too I can always cut the roots back for rhizomes.

Took a peek at the plot this morning... the Fuggles reached the rope and is starting to climb..!



And the Nugget has gained about 5 inches since I last looked...
