I took somr hops rhizomes from a massive plant near my work. It came up this spring and is extremely healthy but also out of control. It's planted next to a trellis. Not quite tall enough to start up it. What is doing is spreading in all directions under the mulch. I went out just now and pulled up everything not growing in the direction I want. I'm wondering what I should do here. Is this thing going to take over the garden?

Initially prune it back to 2-3 bines and direct them to the trellis. Keep pruning the new shoots at least weekly. The shoots are a delicacy in Europe and starting to catch on in the States.

How would you go about eating them?
