Ok, been cutting back my hops for winter today and I found this:

Harvestable Rhizome? by Cyclogenesis_au, on Flickr

I have a hop hill with about 3 inches of mulch, the Cascade has gone NUTS and there is root mass all through the mulch now..

I found that I had accidentally cut some off so I trimmed it back to this:

So are these propigatebale Rhizomes? I have a friend up the road interested in growing some hops so I was thinking of giving some away..

Looks fine. I'd get it in the ground now.

Agree that it looks fine, get it in the ground, loose pack on the soil dont crush it too much, would also suggest putting a lot of much over it if you are in a hard freeze area...
