Growing Hops: Four and a half feet tall!

Well, what do we have here? Could it be some Chinook hops bines? The Chinook and the Cascade
are by far the fastest growing.

What about the Willamette and Hallertau? Well they seem to be getting a slower start. I supposed that isn't a surprise to some of you. I have heard it is harder to grow them.

What is it about the Hallertau and Willamette plants that is making them grow more slowly? Anybody want to chime in?

The first year we planted ours it took about 17 days for them to start. Also depends what the weather has been like since you planted them. Here is an account of the first year we planted ours. What kind did you plant?
