Ive been thinking about starting some plants next year. Is Kansas too hot in the summer to have a good production?

How much bio-bloom does one add? The instructions from biobizz say add it for 10 weeks once per week during the flowering phase:

(http://www.biobizz.com/uploads/besta...5-f795080075c4).

Gridlocked: it looks like you added it 3 times total but how much? 1ml/L, 2ml/L ?
Also I'd like to say thanks for inspiring me to grow hops. I spent the past 2 days cutting down trees to make space for my new hop garden

Pretty much joined HBT for this thread and information. Thanks for sticking with it and sharing what you're learning over time. Found this via Chop & Brew and combined with those videos and Paul's thread I feel well-prepared to care for my just-put-in-the-ground hops.

I have a Centennial and a Cascade in one of my mammoth raised garden beds, a Chinook next to said bed, and another Cascade and Chinook in a couple "eh, maybe it'll work" spots around the yard. I'm in SW Minneapolis and I have precious little space that both gets proper sun and can be devoted to hops, so I'm hoping to get to a point where I've got my big three crowns in great shape and can expect maybe a couple pounds per season.

At this point all of them have broken ground, though those in the maybe spots are noticeably behind the three in my prime spots.


Cascade


Chinook


Centennial

I put them in a day before we fell into a week-long funk of cold and rain/snow, so I'm pretty thrilled they've all even started up, but they're definitely newborns and I obsess over them multiple times daily. I have minor rigging set up to support them for now since they're new, but the stuff you all have shared has definitely got me thinking about far more interesting solutions for year two and beyond.

One thing that you all have mentioned but I would love to know more about is harvesting rhizomes and other ideas to help keep the crowns in check - I know overall it's a losing battle and by putting them into the ground at all I've signed up for a yard with hops in it, but I do want to do what I can to ensure I can still grow other things as well. Maybe someone can convince Walton to include that in a future C&B video?

Thanks for the information, folks. Much appreciated.

Special thanks to Ted for saying that he sometimes just lays the bine on the support and it takes care of itself. I got myself way too worked up on what was clockwise on whatever plane or what that I was just stuck, so I did just that and the bine is now happily doing its thing. Also, now I have the clockwise thing down pat. Hooray, nature!

So just wanted to say I plan on growing hops for the first time. I'm moving back to Kentucky in about 5 months. Just wanted to ask for any opinions you had for a first time grower? I have watched you on chop and brew a few times. I'm currently in the military in Texas and sand isn't really the best environment for them and I don't have the room. Just wanted any info you might have

Thanks for all the comments fellas. I haven't been on this site in a LONG time. I'll try to read through some of the questions above and get back to you. Life is just really busy.
