Ahhh you guys are killing me- especially those pics from Turkey. My plants are still under a couple of feet of snow!

My Zeus came up in one of my pots. Not much action on the other.

I planted 5 centennial rhizomes among three hills with a trellis set up on the south side of my home. I also planted 2 magnum rhizomes in a container, with hopes of training along my garden fence. If it takes, it will go in the ground for next year.

This is my first attempt. Any feedback on the structure of my trellis? I have two eyehooks supporting coated wire rope 3/32" as a guide wire and hop twine for training the bines.

Still need to run 2x4s across the middle and top but it's getting there. Going to have eye hooks on the top to tie bailing string from. So far I have magnum, glacier, US Goldings and chinook.

Posts are 15' out of the ground, I know they go taller.

All second year plants - Cascade, Brewer's Gold and Chinook. Brewer's Gold is probably up 5 feet already. The ground plants outside the planter are strawberries, just starting to bloom, and you can see my raspberry bushes in the picture with the Chinook.

Gonna get a freeze tonight in Westchester, NY area. I have 3 hop plants in planters. Any suggestions? Will they survive the night with some plastic milk cartons on top (acting as mini greenhouses) or should I try lugging them inside?

It snowed this morning, so I thought I'd better get my rhizomes in the ground. I've got a pretty big yard for the city in Cleveland, but limited sunlight, so there's room for two plants. I chose Willamette and Cascade. Northern Brewer set me up with a fat budding Willamette rhizome and two solid Cascade rhizomes. I'm going to set up a t-shaped trellis and have two lines going to each end of the T.

Nomad, you should plant those rhizomes horizontally (with the buds facing up), rather than vertically. They may do all right that way but they are supposed to be planted on their sides. If it was me, I would change it before they start developing a root system.

Sorry but you are incorrect. Hop Rhizomes should be planted vertically (fresh shoots end up) 1 ~ 2 inches below the surface.

Watch the pros do it...

Also, what is the logic of planting BECAUSE it snowed. I would think you'd want to wait till after your chance of a hard frost was over for planting. Did you have them in shallow pots or something?

EDIT: Interesting video, I guess I've always thought of the eyes being one SIDE of the "stalk" of the rhizome rather than an "end." I've planted the rhizome "stalk" horizontal (parallel to the ground) with the eyes (little white stalks) pointing up.
