Dig a hole, mix in some organic matter and plant 'em. Or you could do like they do in Yakima:

. 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!

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.
