Gowing Hops By Zone
 
I have been searching for more information on growing hops, and the one thing I have yet to find a good guide on is based on your zone - what should you plant, so I was hoping you guys could help me compile a single list. If you have planted hops and they grew well or didn't grow well post your experience and I will add it to this thread.

I am also adding to it as I can through my internet research, but hop info just seems hard to find.

Really Mr Kristofo, clean that ****ing dirty mouth!;)

Just to add, each zone is split into half by A and B. Like zone 6A and 6B. I grow mine in the north half of Central NJ and they do well...

Tx should fix that censoring of the species. Besides what else doe l u p u l mean?

has info on UVM extension research on hops growing in VT. the work is not recent (no new posts since 1999) but the information is likely still valid.

Well, I'm right on the border of Zones 8 & 9 and I'm growing 2 varieties this year, and Mother-in-law is growing 4 different varieties for me right on the border of Zones 7 & 8. So I will definitely keep you updated.

Tells you the basic climate, yield, and susceptibility to pests

We had fuggle, cascade and hallertau growing in Zone 9 (Oakland) this year. The fuggle didn't do as well with the sun. it turned a little brown, but still made for some good brews. No other problems whatsoever, great yields for a first year. this year i'm hoping to plant 3 more varieties, so i'll keep you posted!
