Today, I get home from rowk and they are curled up and look almost dead. Is there anything I can do?? Please help.
Just because I found it entertaining, when I read the your first post to start the thread there was an advertisement banner for TruGreen underneath of it. LOLZ.

Glad to hear they are coming back. Its actually common practice in hop production to "chemically prune" the first shoots of the season instead of mechanically pruning them. TruGreen did you a favor (not really... but glad they're okay!)
