I had a Wilamette that I thought was dead. Nothing after about a month and a half. My other Wilamette and 2 Cascades were climbing away. I dug it up just for kicks and replanted it. About a week later, it sprouted and is now working its way up the twine trying to catch up.

I too had 1 sterling that sprouted extremely late. I'd just let it go and see what happens.

I am extremely concerned after reading this thread. How are you guys seeing sprouts already. I did not even get my zomes from Morebeer until last week. How long should I expect it to break ground? I dropped them into the mounds I made and covered with one inch as instructed. I have watered once in a week but we have had a couple showers. I did not want to put too much water on it and the ground beneath the surface still feels nice and moist.

Don't suppose you noticed that this thread is from June, 2008...

Just make sure the ground stays moist, but not wet. Give it a few weeks. Warm sunshine will help so if the weather isn't the best it may take a little longer. Of the 8 rhizomes I planted 3 years ago, only one didn't come up. I think there was a split in the rhizome; that, combined with a wet spring, allowed rot to set in. The last rhizome to come up did so at 4-5 weeks. I also think I planted mine a bit deeper than necessary.

Unfortunately it's not perfect ...sometimes you're going to get something that doesn't grow. Typically the advice is to get 2 of anything you want to plant ...just in case one dies.
