Default Green shoots?

So in sunny SoCal, where it's been in the 70's all week, when should I expect green shoots from my second-year hops? I need to plan for my revised trellis.

This weather has me a little afraid my hops will come out of dormancy too early.

My little confused hops are having issues deciding what month it is as well. I have seen a couple sprouts stating to pop up through the compost I have on top of it.

When they start doesn't matter. I've seen them come up through snow around here. They won't grow much until late Spring.

If they are 2 nd year plants or more the 1st growth should always be cut back.It makes for a stronger bine with more yield Cheers Glen

But it all died off. You mean above-ground growth, right?

We've had mild weather and rain all winter. Just checked my pots today for the heck of it. Mid January, and I have shoots.
