Shade cloth is another consideration as well.
Right, and that's what I have to do around here too. With all the people that have hops growing well in the same conditions as me, I can't help but wonder if the soil around mine is depleted by now. It's a crappy, coarse, decomposed granite base with finer dirt mixed in. I did mulch it, but that was a few years ago.

UPDATE: I've got rhizomes on the way from Boston......the brewer, not the city. A Nugget and a Galcier.

And mother in law has rhizomes on the way as well. She's got a very massive, very cool garden and she's growing hops for me. It's perfet - She does all the work, and I just get the harvest. Centennial, Cascade Willamette and Saaz.........If I remember correctly. I know I got a couple of "C" hops. Just going to do them in large pots on the patio this season as we're about to move. Kind of have a little patio garden going. I have strawberries and Orchids for SWMBO, and I'm gonna do a Habenero plant and some tomatoes as well.

All of mine popped up late last week after being transplanted back in January.

Hey Talleymonster, how are the hops doing? I'm in Vegas, too and am thinking about ordering some Rhizomes. I saw a cool way to do it in pots that doesn't require 20 vertical feet.

Default Hops and Climate

I’ve read that climate does not effect hop growth much. However, I live in northern Nevada where we have cold winters and dry hot summers. Tomatoes and bell peppers grow great in my back yard garden. I’d like to plant hops this spring, but don’t want to if my climate is wrong for them…Does anyone have experience with hop growing in a high-desert climate?

Primary - Personal IPA
Kegged - Irish Stout

Hey Suds, I live in Sparks were you at? I just got some rhizomes in, put them in pots for now until the weather get a little more stable. It never fails 75 one Friday 28 the next!! Any way I tried some last year, but had to leave for the summer and left my pops in charge. They seemed to grow alright, but I don't think he took very good care of them. They got about 10ft of vine going, but no cones that I saw, I didn't come back until end of October though so they were gone by then. Hope to do well this year!

Hey Explude - I'm in north Reno and had pretty good luck last year. Planted a Magnum, Mt. Hood and Cascade. The Cascade never came out of the ground, but Mt. and Mag were great. This year I'm planting a Golding I got from Rob @ RHB in place of the Cascade. My Mt. and Mag are out of the ground about 14" already this year.

Very nice, I still need to determine where I want mine, I'm getting quite ancy though. I had all of mine come up, got them online from a place called the Thyme Garden. I should have asked Rob, but oh well. Did you ask Rob for any pointers? I know he knows some people that have been growing for at least a little while.
