i just found out that we are scheduled for below freezing temps monday night and frost level temps tuesday. i took a look at my cascades (3 years in the ground) and yep! they are coming up like a champ. should i be fazed at the below freezing temps or will the hops ride it out ok? do i need to cover the plant with anything?
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotamy!

27F this morning and no problem. Last year:

What about rhizomes that were just planted last week and are in pots? Supposed to be in the upper 20s at night for the next couple days. I know they are hardy once established but being this young should I worry?

I could bring them in but it would be quite the chore...
