After consulting with my local nurseryman I am feeding my new hop starts
a mixture of the following:

4 lbs. 0-45-0
5 lbs. 10-10-10

I'm applying this mix in scant amounts on a regular basis.

"Dave" (the nurseryman) tells me that I will have no crop to speak of
this year. My goals for this season, he says, should be to develop the
rhizomes if I want to have a decent crop next season. Boosting the
middle number will develop the root system. Next season we will work
on boosting the last number. I'm not sure why yet -- I'll find out
next season.
