Tomorrow i am getting some cascade and saaz cuttings. I am going to put them in some planter boxes. The boxes are 6 inches deep but i have nice soil underneath for them to spread. I have the option of getting them 12inches high?? My main question is what is the best type of soil to use for these hops? Also should I go with higher boxes?
Compost and yes to the higher boxes. Why wouldn't you just plant them in the earth? If it's due to trying to contain them you might be able to get away with a 5 gal bucket (with the bottom removed) planted into the ground. A bigger container would probably be more appropriate.
Yes, I'd go with the bigger containers. The more soil around the crown will help moderate any big temperature swings and may help keep the crown cooler. Good soil, compost, well rotted manure etc. and you're good to go!
Im getting the 12 inch tall today we will see how it works. Soo my question again, i know i need soil and compost but what kind of soil is best if any? I mean store bought soil, or i mught just go to the garden store and ask.
