No problem grow good
I ordered 4 different rhizomes in early June. Planted them within 2 days of arrival. All 4 plants have 2-3 canes that are 2-3 feet tall. Great product so far!!!
Hops arrived with a couple shoots per rhizome. I mistakenly planted them too deep, then fixed the issue 2 weeks later - they were fully growing, just never found the surface. Those shoots died. After clearing my error, I figured they might be dead. A month later, they've climbed the tomato cages I put around them. I expect good fence coverage next year. Based on my vigorous centennial and nugget vines, I suspect they'll harvest in a year or two.
I planted 12 rhizomes of six hop varieties. 10 have done well, 2 did not grow. Those 2 were planted late. The Chinook and Mt. Hood plants have performed best. Highly satisfied. Fun to grow. I have 2 productive, mature Nuggets and expect the new plants to ultimately do as well.
Hops arrived in great shape with many fine roots. We did have some odd weather here in NH so it took about 6 weeks for the hops to poke out of the soil. Over all great hops. Will buy again
