Well, my rhizomes are in the ground now! I planted Cascades, Chinook, and Nugget, 2 rhizomes of each. There is still a risk of freeze here in northern OH, but with the temps at 65 degrees today, and all the other flowers opening up, I couldn't resist getting them planted.

Mike, they are quite cold hardy, so don't worry about them freezing. After all, they'll be there every winter from now on.

I got Goldings and Cascades going in tonight in MD. We're into monsoon season so they should get plenty of water to start.

I put Centennial, Sterling, Fuggle, N Brewer, and Cascade in last weekend (10 days ago). Then the rains hit - 4 days this week - and I've got at least one bud poking up on all except the Sterling.

This would be the perfect week for planting hop rhizomes here in southern Ontario. Almost all the frost is out of the ground in sunny locations, and while we'll have occasional frosts for another month or so, there is unlikely to be such a hard freeze that it will damage hops.

I planted some at my pop's on Saturday. Centennial and Hallertau. The Saaz that I planted two years ago at my place just peeked out yesterday. Nothing from the Northern Brewers from the same year.
