I'm in central VA and grew Cascade, Centennial, Saaz and Nugget for the first time this past season. I built two, 8' tall vertical trellises about 15' apart and then connected the trellises up top using twine for the bines to run even further. I had one bine over 15' long! I expect they will grow even faster this spring on the second year! Cascade did really well, as did Nugget. I had full sun for about 8 hours a day. I fertilized 3 times and my soil is loamy, deep and pH of about 7.0.
