These are my 2 cascades from last year. I live in North Dallas, Richardson last year, now plano. I have 3 crown's on the way from Great Lake Hops to get a full garden going. I'm hoping to get my trelis put up this weekend as one of these guys is almost ready to start climbing. The smaller one actually looks healthier with thicker shoots, we'll see how they do.

One of my nugget plants already has burrs. Not many but a few. Living down south has it perks.

This source states very clearly that hops are left handed:

It seems to say that other climbing plants make right handed helices which would seem to suggest that the following the sun things isn't that critical.

First time grower. I planted Northern, Centennial, and Nugget in a pot. The Northern failed to sprout but the other two are growing gangbusters - 12' but now cones as of yet. I am in Houston - when should I expect the cones to start showing?

Hi

I grew hops in Houston last year. have since moved to the DC area. I started seeing cones from round about now. If you want you can check out my blog (hopstarter.blogspot.com). All the entries from last year are in Houston.

Hope this helps.
