I have them in a bucket now. Are they ready to transfer and start training them on a trellis or something?



Wow, I think I am in love.

Thanks for the introduction Paul.

Agreed. Transplant them now. Get some good organic potting soil and gig a 5 gallon bucket size hole. Dump in the potting soil and transplant the hops.

Generally, you can use any regular, cheap ol' plastic planter with drainage holes, and bury the whole thing.  It keeps most of the roots in check, plus you can pack it with really a really good soil/compost/manure mix, and dig it up if you ever move.  Wish I;d done that, come to think of it...

Ahh cool - easy enough.  Thanks!
