I know a few folk on here are growing hops for their home-brew or just for fun.
Thought it would be nice to start a thread, perhaps we can add picture updates etc.
Im currently growing :
All were 2014 Rhizomes or starter plants purchased online . Santiam was a pot plant project , growing up strings up the back of our house. Was going well until Spidermites moved in during the last critical few weeks before harvest. This year after cutting it back down to the roots its also gone in the ground. (qua oc cho)
All the others went in the ground well away from the house and faired much better growing up arches. I had enough of a harvest to brew 2 x 19 litre batches of beer (one entirely made up of magnum!)
So after winter all is looking good. Fresh growth from all plants this week . Good feeling about the crop this fall, fingers crossed can keep the spider mites at bay.
