My hops (in their 6th year) are going bonkers, growing about 9 inches per day. They're almost to the top of my ten foot trellis.
But I just learned about bull shoots, and I'm fairly certain most of my bines are bulls.Should I chop them all to the ground and let the secondary growth come in? I'm worried I waited too long to cut them back. Should I roll with my bulls or go for the secondary growth? For the record, they seem to be doing great and are pushing out plenty of nodes. I also plan to trellis them sideways across my garden once they get to ten ft, which I thought would be a pretty sight to see. Input greatly appreciated!
