Why did you do that?

that does suck, I can somewhat sympathize as my Gardner hula hoed right through a couple of my hills ripping out rhizomes that had bines going up 5ft at the time and on rope too. I was pissed that day.

Sorry to hear that. When deliberate, I believe that is a capital crime (or should be), but we feel your pain on this one.

Since you still have one bine, you will probably see some cones anyway. The reason we train multiple bines on each twine is just in case of accidents or bugs or deer or children playing Tarzan.

My land is ideally suited for growing tall grass and thistles. No amount of ground preparation stops them. I've got 5 different kinds of thistles growing, none of which are edible. And then there's the blackberries, I still have some in the freezer from last year.

I think I will have something to harvest this year but it may only be one brew's worth. Like I said...its a first year plant. I really did enjoy having them around this spring even with all the work (read obsession). I will be ordering more this coming April/may and plan on doing it right this time. I still have not decided to find matching stone for my existing flower bed or if I should just go with some pots...I will also be planting some sacrificial plants for the bugs and the weedeater....

Sorry for your loss. Early this season, I was mowing the lawn, a lone small bine got caught on the mower and pulled my entire Sterling plant down. It's about 3' tall. I looks pretty. Pretty lean. Sigh...

I feel for ya.

It's a sad day.


I highly recommend staying away from pots when it comes to hops though, they have a very large root structure and do poorly when confined. I have a cascade in a 30 gallon pot which dies back every year mid-summer as if in protest.
