My fuggles are really crawling the hallertau and cascade are doing respectably. Any hints for getting fuggles to take off. I only have two bines and they are about 2-3 inches and really are not taking off.

I was fortunate enough to get my rhizomes from a generous member in my brew club. Got 3 Centennials and 1 Brewers Gold to add to my 3 4th season Cascades growing up in Minnesota.

I planted the new rhizomes into pots, separating the two varieties. Within a couple days, I saw little buds poking out.

1 month later, and the tallest bine is roughly a meter up the twine now! Now I am about to head from my place here in Colorado and plant them in my garden in Minnesota. Hopefully they make the voyage. I leave in 3 hours.

My fuggles is the slow-poke of the garden too. Might just be the nature of the beast.....!?

Damn..! Those buggers grow quick..! Over the past two weeks the nugget has more than doubled it's height to 11' and starting to send out side-shoots... the fuggles is around 5'... not easy to see in the pic against the growth in the background

The nugget reached the top of the trellis (17') and is sending out side shoots everywhere..! The fuggles is about 10' now and has some side shoots too...

The nugget bine topped the trellis, looped down about 5', grabbed the rope again and is going back up. The fuggles has slowed its climb but is really getting bushy..! But ... no signs of burrs or cones yet :-/

My cascades have taken off here in SC. Here is a picture, not a great shot, but they are close to 20ft high. Just starting to bud and flower, but the hops don't start any lower than about 8-10 ft.
