My tips on all of my plants were ripped off in a storm in early June. The babies were only about three feet tall, and now look like bushes around the twine. The sidearms on the mt. hood are twising around each other and growing towards the sky. The centennial did not take to the loss quite as well, but is still thriving and bushing out. My mature cascade had plenty of vertical growth at that time, higher than it had ever been. It's thrown out sidearms and is in the process of flowering now. Won't get the harvest I could have, but it'll be pretty good nonetheless. I've done no trimming to any of the plants, and trained what sidearms would reach up the twine.
