Hops growing update

Oh dear…  mixed results on the hops growing front at the allotment. The First Gold / Prima Donna has rotted! 

We had a wet couple of weeks and I may have planted it a bit deep which probably allowed it to rot.

I dug the grown up and some of the thicker roots seemed ok so I cut them into 2-3 inch lengths and planted them very shallow horizontally. One or two seem to have new white roots starting on them (no, I couldn’t help digging them up again!) so we might have something to show for it.

Otherwise, the Hallertauer is going great!

Plenty of bines growing and it seems to have really taken off. 

Can’t wait to see how it goes.
