Has anyone had experience with growing Challenger hops in the Melbourne area. I've had a Cascade and a Challenger rhizome for 2 seasons now growing in full sun 1 1/2metres apart in the same soil. The Cascade plant is growing fantastically well while the Challrnger plant is small with minimal growth. I'm guessing it's either not suited for the climate or had different soil requirements as it never did well even in mid summer.
