Growing Hops year 2

i banked the hops in a ton of raked leaves and hay. I did not uncover the root stump until early april, could have earlier.
The root stayed cool until I uncovered. Each had almost pushed fingers through, so i uncovered the sprouts. i think the drastic change burned ’em.

A week or so later all 3 had new sprouts.

Goldings is growing very slowly.

Pearle really shooting out lots of bushy growth. vigorous.

Willamette has 1 long arm and 2 or so other sprouts that have not yet jumped up.
