First time growing hops. Rhysomes planted 4 weeks ago, and we have had really weird weather here in Se Wisconsin. What does the first growth look like? I have a couple of purplish nubs on the Williamette mound, but have no idea what I am looking for. Thank you.
Sounds like you’re getting there!
purplish nubs or tiny asparagus
in future years there will be no doubt, it will come up like it is trying to strangle a dog
give them a few days. they will be coming up thicker and bigger than most other weeds in the area.
