Prep you area befor u plant. get a maesuring stick sit back and watch em grow. check out the homebrewers garden if you have any ?'s it is full of great hops advise. as well as a laundry list of other beer ingredients that i never knew were ingredients u can grow.
. You can probably get by with one rhizome per hole as opposed to their 8. A lot of times the farmers do things differently than home growers for various reasons. You're probably at an advantage being that you're close to the river - better soil conditions!
I have mine on the way, I'm in charleston, also near a river !! Ive got cascade and centennial coming - keep us updated, we should trade a couple next year if all goes well !
hell yeah. i'll let you know how they're coming along. from what i hear cascade is a really resiliant plant. (didn't know that when i was ordering.) but if all goes well i will be more than happy to exchange some root cuttings. keep in touch then.

I compost more than any guy I know and my first years produced more than my friends- all planted at the sane time. Compost mulch soaker hose a trellis that can withstand high wind- I've seen them snap- not cool. You'll be fine.
