So, the hops I planted last year came back as expected and they look great. Usual guidance is to cut back first bines and let the second batch grow. Both plants have 4-6 healthy bines and I'm trying to figure out what to do given it's now the first of May (in Philly area). Options:
- cut them all back
- cut back half (maybe "weaker" bines)
I'd appreciate recommendations or experiences.
