First time I've done this...

Received 2 Cascades, 1 Crystal, 1 Sterling, and 1 Mt. Hood on Saturday from Freshops. Planted them shortly thereafter. Wish 'em luck. They're only 4' O.C., because I didn't have room for any more...hopefully they won't get too crowded.

Haven'r received mine yet, which is just as well since the ground is still a mess. Got three Cascades coming.

I don't know about Charlottesville but it's suppose to be below freezing in Richmond Thursday and Friday nights.

I just stuck 2 Fuggle, 2 Kent Golding, and 2 Sterling in pots this morning, which are now in my sunny basement (ground floor), since it's been really rainy and cold here in NY. Can't wait to see them start coming up!

Didn't notice this in your original post, but from www.freshops.com...

Quote:
Plant 1 rhizome per hill with the buds pointed up and cover with 1 inch of loose soil. Hills should be spaced at least 3 feet apart if the hills are of the same variety and 5 feet apart if they are different. The first year the hop plant requires frequent light watering.

Seems to me that the varieties are going to be competing like mad with each other...

Yeah...I know. I read the pamphlet they sent with the rhizomes. But until I build another trellis...that's all I got. I'm building a fence around the backyard next weekend, so I might string up some cable on it and transplant one or two of them.

Good luck with it and have fun. It's great to see them grow and to have a harvest is even more fun.

I still have 2 feet of snow on top of the ground around my hops to see if there is any activity just yet, LOL.
