How much growth will a new rhizome make in its first year?
We have every body saying the virtues Of the Hop,But Mine has gone mad under ground Its spreading every where ,And I want the thing gone.
If you like the plant in moderation but don't want it to go mad, you can dig a channel round the roots about three feet away from the main stem area. Put a length of damp proof course plastic strip into the trench and back fill the gap. The hop will then stay confined within its ring and all you have to do is keep the bits that have already escaped in check.
I have just planted a Golden Hop in a large pot with compost. (about 1/3 m tall so it looked a strong specimen. Within 5/6 days the leaves turned black and it appears to be dying. Would love to rescue it. Any advie would be so much appreciated
Maisie........It is usually hard to kill a Golden Hop (unless you are very determined ).
Mine are gradually dying back now after flowering ( one in the ground and one in a pot ) but no blackened leaves.
Perhaps if you posted a picture, someone may recognise the problem and be able to advise you. Sorry not to be more helpful
