Trim or not?
 
3 Attachment(s)

So I have some cascade hops growing. Its their first year but they were not from a small rhizome a friend actually dug up and gave me a whole plant. I know most people don't cut them back in year one but I feel like mine needs it.

It's now 5 feet tall, has 5 or so solid bines climbing the string but there are another 7 or so bines that are coming up all over the place. So should I trim them and allow all the energy to go into growing the main ones on the string? They are just kind of flopping on the ground.

Anyway I don't want to kill it so can just leave it alone but thought id ask.

Thanks
