I just got two rhizomes, one chinook and one centennial about a month ago and they are just sprouting out of the ground. I know I probably won't get much this year but I would like to see them grow just for the fun of it. To the person that lives in a townhome, so do I and I just got two big buckets, filled them with dirt and planted them. I bought 12 foot long 1"x2" pieces of wood and some eye hooks and have the string falling down from there. So far it hasn't taken up to much space but I will find out when they start getting big.
