Glad I found this thread, it has inspired me to give this a shot.

I need to make these movable (I plan on remodeling the house soon and am concerned that all the construction could damage the plants and make this whole adventure worthless), so I was thinking of using these planters with a 10' pole to help trellis the plants.



Looking at cascade and one other type centennial or chinook (from morebeer.com).

One question: should I plant 1 or 2 rhizomes in each of the planters?

Any other suggestions/recommendations?

Thank and Cheers!

Save your self 2 years worth of time and order hop crowns from Great Lakes hops instead of rhizomes. They send you huge crowns(hops root ball that rhizomes become) and I know a few people here on HBT who have been very pleased with theirs.

Plant one crown per planter.

I had been wondering about growing my own hops and after reading this thread I bought myself two cascade rhizomes. They have been in the ground about 3 weeks now and one is already 2 feet tall. Hows everyone else doing so far this year

I had a bine that never died back so last week I finally cut it. Now I already have a new shoot about 3-4 inches tall. I'm probably going to be moving soon so I don't want to let it start rockin yet. Probably gonna keep clipping everything for the next month then let em go. Seeing how late the season went for me last year I should still have a ton of time.

All of mine are about a few inches tall except a nugget which is about four feet tall. The others haven't started to grow.

My second year Cascade has not sprouted. I think I overwatered over the "winter" in Palm Beach County.

Are they getting good sun? Are you still watering the crown and if so how often? Have you tried giving the crown a water/fish emulsion combo to give it some nutes?

KWB,


I never backed off the sprinklers after the weather got cool and the growth slowed down. They get filtered light as they are in the shade of other plants. I fertilized twice since in the last 6 weeks. I see some bud like things but they seem to turn black.

Give them direct sunlight if possible for the majority of the day and water as normal but not too heavily. See if that helps. I basically didnt water mine for 2 months over the winter and once I started to again after cutting the bines I had left it put out new shoots in like a week. I don't think you watering over the winter should have killed them.
