Finally got my Trellis setup. There are 2 eye hooks screwed into my eaves under my gutters, i am running a nylon rope up, through one hook, across my house(about 14 feet) through the other hook and down. I have my sisal rope/twine wrapped around the nylon and dangling down to get staked. The eaves where the eye hooks reside is ~17 feet high.

I think i went way overboard with the number of lines up considering its a first year plant, but whatever.

From left to right, spaced 6 feet apart.

Columbus, Cascade, NewPort



I put up 4 lines, in hopes that if it does get crazy and grow all the way up that i can train the vine back down ...we will see if that works.

Looks awesome! I don't think you can "train the vine back down" though. The vine will naturally want to fight gravity. What you can do is let out slack from the staked down side and that would allow more room to grow up.

Does that make sense? There's probably a good way to support the vine so it's not flapping in the wind so to speak. Maybe someone on here can suggest something.

When I asked about that here before some one said doing that would likely break the bine which obviously is a bad idea....

Here's my setup. Just one pulley assembly this year but I will probably add a second one in a few years when the nines are climbing that high. I will attach twine and then raise the frame until harvest time. Also I will prob move out of the pots if this location works. Cascade and Centennial.

Cut off prob 50 bones today off my 2nd year crowns. Mainly centennial and cascade and some nugget. Looks a lot better. Cascade especially was going nut with 15-20 nines per plant.

Default First attempt at growing hops

We live in a row house with no yard. Our balcony is the best we have. Here is a picture of the Cascade rhizome we planted this weekend. We also have a Magnum rhizome in another pot. We'll see how well this setup works, better than nothing!
