My second year mystery hop just got frosted.
All the bine and lateral tips are black.
The first bine had just reached the top of the string - about 12 feet.

Has anyone seen a bine recover from this?
I'm thinking I should cut it all down to the ground and let them start again.

Any advice would be appreciated.

You have plenty of season remaining to cut it back and still get full growth and production in a mature crown.
