Default My hops is tired?!

Hello!
It's my second message! Woawww!
And sorry for my english

So... I have some hops and I bought 3 variety:
Magnum, Saaz (fu***** Saaz! Too hard for growth) and Northern Brewer.
They begun to growth in pot, then I put them in the ground.

The problem is: before to put them in the ground, I forgot to water them during 2 week... So they were not very very beautiful... And then, when I put them in the ground, they alway were bad... So I ask me: I cut everything or I wait?

I will try to take picture...

Keep the ground wet and wait for a couple weeks, you will see growth.

The rhizomes are very tough and can survive not being watered for a while, so they are probably still alive.

patience is key. If your soil was pretty moist when you put them in i think they will bounce back just fine(not sure how winter is in france can only vouch for growing stuff thiss time of year in germany). Good luck.
