My son is moving from Nebraska to Arkansas in mid May, and is interested in growing hops there. My initial plan was to have him transport some of my plants. I kind of overdid it here, with 23 plants growing, so I could spare some. Most of them are taking off now, with bines a foot or more long already. I suspect there will be too much to the plants to haul if we try transporting them in a month. Has anyone tried this?
The other thought I had was to bury some of the shoots coming up, and see if they will set roots, in effect making rhizomes that might be less daunting to transport. Again, I'd be interested in hearing people's experiences in similar circumstances.
