Got my 3 centennials yesterday and got them in the ground right away. Temps here have been crazy, we had snow 2 weeks ago, and hit 90* yesterday. The mailbox got a little toasty due to the excessive heat/sun, hopefully that doesn't ahve any negative impact on the rhizomes...they appeared healthy and had little shoots coming out so I am assuming they are good to go. Can't wait to see green poking through the dirt!

Yeah were chopping at the bit also. Cold weather here is slowing things down.

Got my rhizomes yesterday they look pretty damn nice compared to some of the root cuttings my wife and I get from different plant & seed mail order companies--Plan on planting half these north of here at the cabin. Thanks for a great deal !

Got my rhizomes in the mail yesterday as well and all I can say is DAMN! Those are some great looking rhizomes. Plenty big with shoots coming off the nodes. Can't wait to get them in the ground and let them start doing their thing!

No clue if they're looking great or not since I have no reference for it, but I did receive them and planted the Mt. Hood. Now I just have to find a spot for the other 5... thinking about big pots for now, since I don't have much ground on the southern exposed side of the house.

Decided to go with 5 big pots for all but the Mt. Hood since I am not really sure where to put them in the yard where they'd A) get enough sun and B) be able to grow vertically at least 10 feet. Centennial and Cascade have sprouted already. No sign on the others. I think I may dig up the Mt. Hood and put it in a pot also since I'm not really sure of the soil and how much sun it is getting. Pretty happy so far considering I assumed completed failure based upon my brown thumb. I think I may end up just stringing twine from a 2nd story window or 2 and running the bines up thataway.

I planted my hops rhizomes 2 weeks ago today and I was super surprised and excited to see that they're already starting to come up! Of the 4 varieties I planted, my cascades are the only ones to show themselves, but I have high hopes for the rest of my plants!

5 out of 6 of my rhizomes are going pretty well. I was worried about the williamette at first, but that now seems to be one of the strongest ones with three little guys now peeking out of the soil. They are all at a stage where they look a whole lot like another plant in their family. Not much length on them yet. I didn't add any fertilizer initially, just generic potting soil (which I believe has some nutrients in it.. just not sure how much), so maybe I will get some miracle grow or something. The 6th one is the one I put in the ground, Mt. Hood. Nothing from that one, but I have a feeling it just doesn't have enough nutrients or sun or something. I'm still thinking about digging it up, and will probably go ahead with that once I get down to home depot to score another 4-5 gallon pot.

Thanks Arrowhead, everything is looking good so far! I was expecting 0/6 with my brown thumb, so it's either the robustness of hops in general or the quality of the rhizomes. Either way, I am very pleased and already happy enough that if they all kicked the bucket I wouldn't be too sad about it.
