Well, I can assure you that Cascade can grow well in MN. Here's my second year Cascade plant from today which looks like it's about to take over to neighborhood.

Didn't have any luck with Chinook, however.

I currently have Horizon & either Sterling or Liberty (I can't recall.)
The ones I can't recall have never flowered, in 4 years.
They will get replaced with Northern Brewer.
The Horizon do quite well.

I peeked under the skirt of my 2nd year hops this past weekend (under the leaf bedding). No growth yet. Hard freeze this morning in the Walker area so it's just as well. I hope they can hibernate a bit longer.

Yep it is coming a long nicely. Thanks again for the help with the trellis last week! If you guys want to see more updates you can check out my thread on here as well. I should have updated pictures of the trellis and irrigation setup soon. This weather needs to warm up.
