One hell of a hopyard you got there Jay. At the moment, I could only wish to have that much land to plant. Had to plant mine in half barrels...

the ones that look like twigs dont really do that much from what i have noticed. its the one that look like they are roots that do the best.

discgolfin.... how go the hops now? any improvement? Now that the rain is gone and it's cooled off a bit, my otherwise weak cascades are much improved.

All of my hops came up and are doing OK. I have a Nugget that is only 1 ft tall but everything else is 6' or more now (2 cascade, 1 nugget, 1 williamette from FreshHops, 1 East kent golding from a friend, 3 fuggles from a hop rhizome exchange).

I'm in Dundee, IL and though the plants do get some shade they have grown well, I don't water them much as we have been getting a lot of rain, I only will water them if it's been a week since it rained, they are mulched well with leaves and grass clippings to keep moisture in the ground.

I hope yours are doing better now that it has warmed up a bit.

I planted hallartauer and goldings about three months ago and the hallartuar are about 8 feet and the goldings are about 3 inches. Its pretty warm here so I have them in a pretty shaddy area.

I have first year hops form Midwest as well, Cascade, williamette, Mt. Hood and Goldings. All are over 8ft tall now and doing well. They took over a month to break the ground, but are growing about a foot a week now. The Cascade gets the most shade, but is still almost 8 ft. I also got a rhizome from Fresh Hops, and it is a much stronger plant, but still about the same height as the others.

I purchased three rhizomes from Freshops (Cascade, Magnum, Nugget). The Magnum are only about 9" high but the Cascade and the Nugget are probably close to 10'. I say probably because, unfortunately, I had to grow them vertically for the first 6' and then train them to grow laterally because of the circumstances of my tiny urban yard. They are all healthy, but the Magnum just isn't as magnum as I thought it would be.

So it seems everyone is just getting mixed results from their first year plants?

I'm getting results, but ambiguous about how they might turn out. All 4 of my plants (2 Cascades, a Willamette & a Chinook) are growing strong, but they all seem to be getting some sort of wilt. Perhaps downy mildew... is this even prevalent in the great lakes region? Perhaps bird s**t... they're trained to a lattice that birds land on (they seem to eat bugs) or perhaps some other sort of malady I cant identify.

The problem I have is that professional, informed literature with good color photos relating to hops growth is sparse, and that which I can find hasn't been very helpful.

Everything else in the garden is growing great this year (some sort of somthin on the celery but not the extent to which the hops are suffering) so I'm not all that worried. I've treated with a 3 in 1 fungicide, insecticide, mite-a-cide, and that seems to have helped at least a bit.
