2nd year hop grower.
4) 2nd year plants. 14)1st year plants. All planted in homegrown compost and watered well with soaker hoses.. Working my ass off to keep Japanese Beetles under control.
Cones are starting to develop.
I'm thinking to myself, what's the last trick I can do to produce a great yield?
Or perhaps the question should be- Having got this far, what else can I do to help my hops develop bountiful healthy cones?
Any tips, suggestions, advice, I'll take it all.
