Just wondering,
Should I cut any remaining unyielding bines off my hops now?

I have my hop plants in pots i cut the bines off a few inches from the ground at the beggining of winter. They stayed green and a few shoots popped up but now most if not all the shoots have died off. Is this normal? Is the rhizome still alive underground and just "hybernating" over the winter?

Im just hoping they havent died.

sinkas,
After I harvested the cones I cut mine down to the ground around April, May.

cheers

The plant was goin for one last hurragh b4 it went dormant(hence the dead shoots).
ground temp has a lot to do with what will trigger a bulb or rhizome into dormancy or into action.
a scratch around the surface at the top of the rhizome will probably show some bud swells(around the site of the old shoots) that will become new shoots come spring.

You can buy rhizomes online (www.grumpys.com.au is one place) or if you're lucky, you might be able to get a cutting or rhizome from someone on this board. A few people have already offered cuttings in this thread.

They're planted around the end of winter.
This may already have been mentioned in the preceding 30 pages, but....

Does anyone know where to get hold of hop Rhizomes in Melbourne?

I would love to get hold of some.

I will be ripping out my POR later this year, probably around the end of August for burial at the new house.
There will probably be some of the rhizome spare if you want some.
PM me if interested.
