They don't have any eyes or bines sprouting. What now. I already have a hop garden plan. I only ordered two rhizomes but 8 and 4 diff types.

Plant and water them. A rhizome is a modified stem , much like a bulb . Get them in some moist soil and wait a few days to weeks and you should see some growth.
It seems the general rule is about 4" deep in a 1' mound 3-5 feet apart . I would place a tablespoon of balanced Osmocote ( 10-10-10 , 15-15-15 ...) about an inch below the rhizome . Keep moist, not wet till you see growth. Hops are a weed and a cousin of cannabis they will take off and grow almost anywhere . Have fun , relax and get a book about growing hops. If you find things that help or hurt them post your experience so we all can learn with you :-)

Wait, what?


It matters which way they go in the ground.

Your rhizomes look great. I can even see a white sprout coming from at least one. Don't worry, just get them planted and let them take off!

Not really, both ways work...the bines will find the sun regardless of their orientation.

Just bought this crown? I'm not ready to plant it yet. What can I do with it? I'm having my yard graded and a sprinkler system and sod put in along with other plants. I'm also gonna build my trellis but not for a few more weeks. I could put it in a pot

I just bought two from that guy too. Can't wait to see how much they will grow/produce this year.
