Default Help!

I planted four rhizomes in may. Both of the nugget plants came up but the two perle hop plants never came up. I've read that in the first year they are trying to establish a good root system and not to expect to much from the plant. Should I give up hope or keep throwing water at them in hopes they come back next year?

I feel like rotted toast could be the next great oxymoron.

I don't know if there's anything peculiar about Perle plants - I don't grow that strain - but my advise is to consider those two rhizomes ancient history and think about planting much earlier next year. Do a good job prepping the soil, account for good drainage, don't over water, and with any luck you'll end up with healthy plants...

Cheers!

I agree... any rhizome that has been under ground 3 or 4 months is done at this point. Obviously the rhizome didn't have enough energy to survive. Prep for next year and check out greatlakehops.com. They are awesome and for few bucks more you can get "live" plants with a developed root system.
