Another Yorkshire grower here. My first time growing them but I bought a few of these as rhizomes from a bloke locall6 who had already had a few years out of them. To the left of the doors are First Gold, on the right is Cascade which is going like the clappers and just peeking up next to that you'll see some EKG. Final photo is some Challenger.ImageImageImage

some of my leaves are going a bit strange, anything to be worried about? Plant looks pretty healthy otherwise

googling makes me think it's downy mildew :x

It looks more like bruising, are they close to anything that they can hit if its windy? If in doubt just removed the affected leaves and keep an eye on the rest of the bine.

Not those leaves, but it is in quite a windy spot

Thanks, I'll keep an eye on it :)

Here's my First Gold. I think they're doing okay although this is the first year I tried growing hops so no point of reference.Image
