If you want some strong rhizomes for expanding you hop yard next year, this is the time to prepare. Rather than cutting your bines down, lower them and bury the first 3-4 feet a few inches down. In the Spring you'll be able to cut the buried bine into rhizomes.

Do you cut the rest of the bine off after that first 3-4'? Or do you leave that exposed to continue to take in sunlight?

Leave the rest until it dies.

I also wish I had more room. I would like to plant three more varieties.
