Hop Rhizomes

Well 7 of my 8 rhizomes I planted are doing great. Many of them are twisting up the twine trellis. I had ordered 4 and 4 were from a brew club member. Both sets were stored in the fridge over a week before planting. I soaked the rhizome in water about 30 min before planting. Planted them in April, still cold in MN. I put them just 2" down. A couple weeks later sprouts. Now they are about 18" or more tall. It seems like they grew faster once they were around the swine. Unless that's just because they are more established. Well I should have Hallertau, Fuggles and Centennial this fall.
