excellent. We have some land out that way, so good to know they may survive if I keep them watered.

Good luck. Looks good so far. I just got my rhizomes planted yesterday. I hope I get to show them off soon. I mixed up garden soil, peat moss, and vermic-whateveritscalled into a few 10 gallon containers.

So i ripped up the Sterlings as they did horrible last year, they had bad root rot so it's probably for the best. I put in wild hops from Wisconsin in their place. I also moved the Centennial to a new spot and put another Cascade in it's place.

Also I strung Smaller rope (twine) between the like varieties to let them grow between 18-22' before they run out of room, height is dependent on how far apart the rhizomes are planted.

Columbus


Summit


Wild Wisconsin Hops


Cascade


Chinook


Nugget

I'd roundup and mulch around the plants to choke out the bermuda/ kikuyu that will steal nutrients and root space..

Update: we finally had some rain and it helped the centennial and wild hops to final start getting some vertical growth. Also had a small harvest from the Cascade and Chinook already.

I had 1st year Summits, Columbus, and MT Hoods in the back yard but SWMBO forgot to water them for me while I was gone for a week due to work and they all died =/
