Propigating Hops From Rhizomes

When we first started this garden blog a few years ago we got a female Chinook hop plant. It has since given us bitter and aromatic flowers every season that have been used in all the homebrews from the Spotty Dog. It is also spreading like crazy and it is time to divide it up a bit.

We cut this rhizome with some new bines intact for immediate transplant.

We are also toying with the idea of planting more rhizomes along our south east facing windows as it is the tallest side of the house (for trellising) but also to shade us a little in summer, and for more hops for homebrew of course.
