When to make the cut?
My hops are growing quickly now and they are my second year growth. I need to start thinking about make a few cuts to keep only my 2-3 main vines to grow strong.
When you I make these cuts and this is there a specific method to cutting to ensure I don't harm the plant?
Here are a few pics of a Cascade and Fuggle. They both are between 18-24 inches tall and growing like crazy each day. I also have nugget plants that are growing equally as well followed by my Willamette's which is barely 12 inches if that.
Thanks for looking and for the advice.
PS... I'll be adding a nice layer of cedar mulch this coming weekend.
