What is the best rope/twine to use when growing hops and most affordable. Other than coir. I need around 270' for my 25 rhizomes. I have my trellis set up and ready to go. Also what do you guys use to anchor these.
I use standard ol' twine I pickup from HD or Lowes that I loop through an eye hook on the eave of my house. I have also tried using a light nylon string with this for added strength but have found it unecessary. I attach the twine to the ground with a stake. It doesn't take much as when the bines take hold of the string they will keep things in place.
+1 on jute--you can throw it in the compost pile when the season is over and find it in bulk spools at HD or Lowes I tend to double it up just as a precaution because it breaks down in wet environments, and falling bines are a bummer.
