I don't have any experience with those varieties, but the first year the hallertauer was slow. I mean slow, like two months, before it peeked out. Now, it's like a jungle! The cascade was the fastest to show out of the earth, but now it's more of a "medium" emerger, if that makes sense. It's less than half the height of my hallertauer this year, but it'll overtake it soon.

My newest rhizomes are centennial and chinook. The chinook popped out about 3-4 weeks after planting (it's been cool this spring) and nothing from the centennials as of yet.

Even though they aren't poking up through the soil visibly, there is a lot going on under the earth. They get acclimated, and start sending down roots and even start forming the crown, before the show themselves. Once they're established, though, they are aggressive and will really take off.

Well I dug up the three that havn't done anything and they are dead. So looks like next year I'll have 2 second year plants and try 3 new rhizomes.

Dead happens. My Columbus didn't make it this year. I think I'll replace it with a Magnum next Spring.

I had and am having the same issue. I bought 8 rhizomes 2 Zeus, 2 Cascade, 2 Northern Brewer and 2 Fuggles. I planted in mid April and they began sprouting in early May I believe. My zeus were the first to sprout, followed by one cascade. In mid May One Fuggles sprouted. Then nothing. I even dug them up in late May and the rhizomes appeared to not have grown a bit. I reburied them and since then 4 more have sprouted. I have only one cascade that is still yet to break ground.

I just did an extensive search. There are very few Hop Rhizomes out there still and no nugget. Sorry.

My willamette were very fussy growers...even a one year old transplanted crown did not grow very well. Cascade was also slow the first year. One of my willamettes that died this year I replanted and it still didn't come through.

We also have a cool year this time around...temps here in Nor Cal are 20 degrees behind the same time last year.

1 of my nuggets was 4 weeks, 1 was 7 weeks to surface. The cascades were training up a line before the late nugget broke the surface.
