The hallertau looks great I must say...little root ball and all!

The DIY ones came all cramed into a tiny package...seemed like the Cascade was a little damaged...we'll see what happens.

Don't worry about the Cascade's condition. It is a vigorous variety. My Cascades was the only bine that had enough flowers the first year to bother harvesting. The second year, it out-produced the other 7 by quite a margin. Year 3 & I have some shoots coming out of last year's bines and about 25 coming out of the ground.
