That's a beautiful sight! Brings a tear to my eye, it does.

I hope mine look as good when they break ground.

I'm debating on whether to cut them back or try to string more sets of guildline. They are spreading like wild fire. That one 3' offshoot is hugh.

I think my hop book will say to trim them back. I need to read....

You only need about 2-3 bines per rizhome. Cut the rest back so they have the energy to climb.

Its 2 & 3rd.

I've had them for three years. I dug them up and transplanted them last spring.

When I did it I removed a basket ball sized mound of root & dirt. So 2 years in this location!
