Update: the nugget(in the red pot) and the willamette(in the barrel) are up and chugging along, the nugget is as tall as me by now, and the willamette isn't far behind. Oddly, my 2nd year varieties just popped up this week and are still too small to justify a picture.

I also grow in pots, second year

How many bines do you let grow and when did you trim?

Thanks and nice pics!

I let the first year plants do whatever they want, no trimming. I'm let 3 bines grow on each of my 2nd yr plants.

Nice setup! I'm doing something really similar and had a question for you. Did you do anything to mount the landscaping poles to the barrel or are they just held up from sticking down into the dirt? I just have mine standing freely in the dirt at the moment and am wondering if mine will hold up in a storm (I may find out tonight...unfortunately).

Oh yea my poles are set right up against the side of the pot and each is held in place by two nice sized bolts, a bit different from your design

I have crowns and rhizomes. Can I plant the rhizomes in pots for a year or two. I also have small plants. They are called field grade hops is what the company said. Little plants. Can I plant them in the ground or will a good rain drown them? Same with rhizomes?

Update: all the hops look really good, the first year rhizomes have kinda stalled but I have no doubt they'll pick back up. The Second year crowns look great. The one cascade crown I planted in the ground took a while to come alive, I thought it was dead at first but a few days ago it emerged and has grown at least 2 feet in a few days! Here's a few pics:

The cascade and columbus are already beginning to climb the top piece...i'm very optimistic about this setup, once it fills in i doubt you'll be able to tell how ugly it is! The columbus already has a lot of burrs...
