Re: [Grow-Hops] RE: Separating Cascade from Centennials
- If you want to separate them, you'll have to trace the bines down to
the rhizome and separate them there, cutting out rhizomes and labeling
them, then planting them somewhere else while you destroy the rest
with Roundup or some other weed killer. I doubt you could do a
thorough enough job of getting rid of everything left by roto-tilling
and then pulling them all out by hand.
If you're careful enough, you'll have enough left standing after you
remove, lablel, and re-plant the ones you identify that you can do it
all this year before they die back to the ground. And if you wait a
few weeks, depending on what weed killer you choose to use, you can
replant your marked rhizomes. Just keep them well separated and
occasionally roto-till between them and rake out everything ripped up
unless they're really far apart.

>Not a perfect system, but you can go by hop cone formation. The Centennials should be long and skinny (cyllindrical) whereas the Cascade should be a little more cone like with a taper from end to end. As I said, FAR from perfect, but may help. Alternatively, they should work well in a beer together and you could just use them as a mix...
