That is some impressive growth. My Perle, Sterling, and Hallertauer rhizomes are up 5-6 inches high. Hopefully they'll take hold. Rob

Posting photos I took about 10 minutes ago they are growing well. Don't worry first year growth was kind of slow for me too. Look at the 2010 tab.

Mine started with a "Mr. Beer" kit five years ago and you can see where it goes from there

I am beginning to have plants coming out of the ground about 3 feet from the original planting, when is a good time to take out the rhizomes and when I take them out does anybody want them, if they are in good shape I will give them away. I am in a suburb on the west side of Cleveland.

rcarson - I've always thinned/moved my hops when they're dormant or close to it, usually in the late fall or early spring.

It looks like it might be a good home-grown hop year. Both my Nugget and Cascade plants are healthy and climbing. I'm looking forward to a good harvest and brewing some fresh-picked hop ales this fall.

Im going to start growing my own this coming week. I wanted to wait til summer to start to actually give me some time to take care of it. I'll let you know if it works out and what angle i approached this at if it works out. ;)

First year will be slower growth. You really just want the roots to develop anyway.
