Default Just Planted 4 Cascades

I'm very late in the season but I thought planting now would at least give the plant a good root base.

I waited too long for someone to give me rhizomes, so I ordered them off of a mid-west brewers site, producing less than spectacular product. I took the 4 rhizomes to my sister-in-law (hippy lady with plants everywhere type of person). She had a spot to plant them and to have them grow up tall ropes into a giant pole in their yard.

She planted them in aged manure/compost and put them into pots for them to start budding and root, then she was going to plant them facing south-easternly. She lives off of the first bench so she has lots of drainage and perfect soil.

We have had a LOT of rain in the treasure valley (south western idaho) recently, and we are staying well above freezing. We also have blistering summers, where 100+ is not uncommon.

Whats the chances of budding this year? Anyone other growers in the Boise area let me know if there are any tricks or secrets to our region.

Thanks
