I was thinking centennial and columbus. Do some grow more vigorously than others? Im not too late am I? I can also buy actual plants

First year growths usually aren't the greatest.  In the years after that, depending on how many you plant, you may end up with more than you would want lol :)


This is 1 small section of a Cascade bine... and we had 6 cascade bines that year.

I went with centennial and columbus. Ive been thinking about the placement of the plants for a few weeks now and i think i have a spot figured out. I was tempted to just throw a few rhizomes by the chain link fence in the graveyard behind my house... 

Give them a spot with as much sun as possible, and somewhere to grow.

They're in planters. Next year, bigger planters. But to be honest, a yard full of hops... sounds great 

 

next year I wanna have them growing sky high and have a hammock underneath them. 

Yeah - should be easy, I read they get REALLY big.

But planters should keep them of limited (manageable) size by restricting the roots.

For REALLY BIG, plant them in the ground on top of a big heap of compost. and give then 20 ft poles.

What are your yield totals @Creeps McLane?

A whopping 0.6 oz of Columbus! Ill just dry hop with it. Bit i started with one rhizome of Columbus and one of centennial and if im not mistaken i now have 2 columbus and 16 centennial... that was a good investment. Hop planter is on my mind now. Year two hops will need more room
