First year cascade and nugget, cascade on left about 5' and nugget on right, about 3'.

Is this good growth so far, they are not getting alot of sun should I fertilzer or let them go on their own?

They'll keep growing. My second year cascades are doing well, but the Willamettes are toast. I'm going to dig them out, for whatever reason, they don't like it where I planted them.

Adding some compost or fertilizer is always a good thing. I take a little compost, put it on top of the soil, then when I water the nutrients from the compost go down into the soil.

Congrats on the hops - they're looking good!
