I've got 3 year old hops growing this year. Had a few bad storms and the heads came off of some. I watched a video that said the next set of leaves will grow shoots from it to continue the initial stretch of the bine. I'm seeing many side shoots growing farther down the bine. Not worried just curious if it will continue to grow up my trellis or if it's going to start sending side shoots for hop growth. Do I prune these side shoots or train them on the trellis. Pic for context.

My hops had a bad attack of cutworms this year. After I dealt with them, the hops remained stunted for a while but eventually grew up and filled the trellis. I suggest doing nothing, they'll grow.
