Need some advise - here are pictures of the hops I have that have sprouted up already from last year's rhizomes. Pictures are as of 3/25/12

Should I cut any/all of them back or let things grow? Please help (and reference pictures if all/not some to be cut back).

If cutting back to I just snip at the soil line?

Thanks for the help!

Centennial #1A

Centennial #1B

My second year hops are all like your Centennial #1D . I am just going to let it go until i get about 2 feet lengths then start weeding out.
