I have always heard that new rhizomes need the soil to stay moist for container hops and frequent watering is a necessity. The BYO article on container hops and Basic Brewing Radio is where I'm getting most of my info.

Without heat, sun, or a dry hot wind, those pots will retain moisture just fine until it warms up. Stick your finger in the dirt an inch or 2 down. If it's still damp, leave it. Flooding it now will just rinse all the nutrients from the soil. They're going off reserves until they kick into full blown growth phase and leaf-out.
