Perfect. I was told by the grower who I purchased from (willamette valley hops) that you can plant up to three right next to each other. Is this what you guys are doing or should I keep them in separate pots?

I put each rhizome n its own pot. I wldnt put different rhizomes together. Plus when u go to transplant they may b intertwined. You run the risk of damaging the roots. Thats why I did one per.

I'm in the same boat up here in Boston. I planted my rhizomes in buckets when they came in but I also brought in the buckets from last year. The new ones are just now peeping up but the old ones are 2' tall. Oops. I might have to run twine over the certain rails... Anyone from MA care to comment on when it's best to put them outside?

do not cut back a rhizome.What you have sprouted is all you are going to get to establish your crown . On second and subsequent year plants we cut back or burn back the first growth.This allows proper timing of the plant and also gets rid of the sucker bines that produce less Cheers Glen

I would start hardening them off as soon as the ground is workable in your area. Then plant them out a few weeks after.

The "memorial day" planting guide is more for vegetables that are annual crops and do not take light frosts well. Hops are perennial, and can withstand a fair bit of cold weather.

All of mine sprouted this week, in WI. They were under a 2 ft snow drift last week. The night time temps are still in the low 20's right now. I might cover them with Styrofoam plant covers at night this next week, with daytime highs only in the 20's. But even that is not necessary.
