Yep, I said it.

Organic? That's a bunch of mumbo-jumbo. If your hops aren't growing quite like you want them to, or as fast as you want to, use the blue powder Miracle Gro.

That's all I have to say because I believe that stuff sells itself,

Hops are heavy feeders. Compost will do the trick if you are an experienced gardener.

I used Miracle Gro on the second batch of trees I planted. First round 15% survival, second round 91%.

Yep, that stuff owns. I've started gardening this year not only with hops, but with a variety of veggies. In our raised bed, we have tomatoes, spinach, cucumbers, and bell peppers. Everything but the tomatoes were getting owned before I put miracle gro on them. Sure enough, the very next day after applying the miracle gro, all of the vegetables were dark green and actually grew vertically over night. This is going to sound like a joke, but we had a rose bush that I dug up and put into a 20" planter that was mainly brown before applying miracle gro. The next day, it had about 6 buds of which 2 were already flowering lol.
