Updated pictures!!!

My Cascade is now throwing cones and topped out just shy of the top. Columbus was the first plant to reach the top of the pergola and my Nugget is close behind. A few other varieties are sure to reach it soon too. Centennial and Chinook are lacking this year, need to get some more nutrients into that soil!

So nice to see the plants topping out on the pergola this year! Was very worried about growth after the transplant and they're finally starting to look happy!

Cones are growing larger on all plants and are still a bit wet but i'd expect to start harvesting some of the varieties in the next couple of weeks here. They didn't get nearly as full at the top as they have in the past but at least they've hit the top of the pergola this year and hoping for more growth next year. Its been quite the experiment of how a transplant can affect hop plants but happy to see them getting stronger. Even though they've been fairly neglected as of late.

Default Too much hop traffic?

Everything looks great! Question: I have a 10 ft. high/10 ft. wide arch that I have 5 separate (partially buried) boxes with different hops growing up ropes that I eye-hooked from the boxes to the top bar of the arch. Looks just like your pergola but only 1/2 of that (like one side of the box). They're all 1st year rhizomes, but a couple of the strains are really aggressive and have already reached the top and started to grow across the cross bar. I'm worried the leaves are getting all bunched up among the strains and that they'll get O2 deprived since it's so dense ... is this a valid concern? Especially for next year when all the strains reach the top... where are they going to go? Thanks!
