hop bines after harvest
You can cut them to the ground. Sometimes, there will be above ground rhizomes. I have a couple plants that have these. You can see where the dead bines come out and the rest of it is still living. They are not dead and have buds just like the ones under ground and they will sprout again next year. I plan to cover these with some manure and mulch for the winter.
