Default Growing Hops Primer

Growing hops is a blog about growing hops in 2009 from planting hop rhizomes (just sprouting) to the future harvest. Just going on what I have read and my friends hop growing experiences (they are successful). Hopefully a good year and not too many challenges (deer, rabbits...) we'll see. I have already picked up some tips fromm the above links - thanks!

if i plant hops do i need to do anything with them when winter comes? or do i just leave the root system in the ground to deal with it? or do you need to baby them a year or so until they get strong enough to deal with a winter?

winter isn't too harsh in salt lake city...well at least not compared to Wisconsin winters.

I just read the PDF the OP linked to about hop trellising....

Am I to understand that they are trying only a 9-10 foot tall trellis?

Are they training the plants to only grow 9-10 feet?

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? Cheers!

Anyone grow hops in Florida? I'm just north of Tampa and it is very hot here in the summer and would like to know if it's even possible to grow them here.

Hey Jake the Hop Dog...you should pick the brains of your local home brew store or contact these folks: www.freshops.com . I ordered three rhizomes (cascade, magnum, mt. hood) from them and they were helpful. I'm in northern Nevada so my climate is vastly different than yours. That said, the people at Freshops will tell you if they'll work in FL. There are others on-line too who I found helpful: www.thymegarden.com www.bcrosbyhops.com

Happy hopping amigo!
