Default Cascades slow to come up?

Just to let everyone know, first year to brew and first year to grow. With that being said, I was curious about how fast hops come up. I believe that I probably planted a few weeks late, however, 3 of the 4 varieties are coming up decent. I planted Goldings, Sterling, Willamette and Cascade. The Cascade's are not shooting yet and I was wondering if they are a late starter?

Sometimes they take a while to come through the soil, I wouldn't worry quite yet, every one of the rhizomes I have planted came up, that's 22 for 22, give it a few more days and I suspect it will push through the soil, have you started a trellis system for them? They will grow like wildfire so be prepared, good luck.

My cascade took longer then my fuggel and pride of ringwood if that helps.

Yep, I am fortunate enough to have a second story deck that faces south, that is approximately 14 feet above the ground including railing. That is my "office", with a sliding glass door so I should be able walk out, pick and process without much trouble. Aside from the 8 feet I have to climb the ladder to pick the middle cones. Built in trellis.....

I bought a cascade rhizome from freshops and right after I bought another from thymegarden (cause I didnt think it was going to come up) the sucker comes up after six weeks in the ground. So now I have two rhizomes in that hole growing like crazy. Like everyone said, give it some time and I am sure they will come around.

First year growth depends more on the quality of the rhizome, than anything else. But unless something ate it, your Cascade will be fine.

I also went with Freshops so I won't fret anymore. Thanks for letting me relax a little. Like I said earlier, the others are coming up just fine.

I planted a northern brewer, a goldings, and a centennial rhizome this spring. The NB and golding were both sending shoots out of the soil in less than a week. After a while I was worried the centennial had either gotten too much water or not enough or something. Then this past week it poked a few bines through the surface and now they're growing up looking nice and healthy. All this is to say that some rhizomes seem to take longer than others to sprout, but it's nothing to worry about.

I planted 4 different types of hops and the cascades are the last to come up. They have been in the ground for about three weeks and are just now starting to make there way to the light. I think this is because I planted a little deeper than I should have. Either way 9 of the 12 plants are looking very healthy, and I'm still very hopeful for the other 3.
