Just finished vac packing my first year crop of cascade, which did pretty well. from what I had read, I was not expecting much. I got 14, 1oz. packages of whole leaf, dried. So far I have harvested about 2/3 of what was on the vines. Vines are about 12' with 5-6 foot secondaries. I did not prune at all as it was the first year.
I also planted Centenial which did nothing?? Does anybody know if this is normal for centenial? Plants were in the same garden, using the same cultivation methods. They got about 3' tall and then just stopped growing. They still look healthy, but did not go. May be making root stock??
What about protecting the plants for winter?
