If your curious about how the different varieites perform in this area (TN VA NC) I just finished posting my harvesting results for all my varieities except for the Cascades which were destroyed and will be replanted this year from fresh stock.

http://research.hopgardens.com/?page_id=154

Disclamer - individual results may vary

But its what I got from the 2010 season. I am still posting notes but with all the graphs its kind of easy to see the variability between varities.

Cheers

I am in Alexandria Virginia, and am interested in starting a HOP garden. Can any one recomend a good source for Hop Rhizomes ?

Did you end up growing hops? We live in Norfolk and we're thinking about buying some rhizomes.

Its a small world haha...I live in Gloucester just over the Coleman bridge by Yorktown. Its good to see so many hbt people close by. I ordered 3 cascades and 1 magnum to try to start this year... from what I've read so far we shouldn't have too many issues with most varieties.

I'm in Newport News. My 5 Cascade rhizomes went gangbusters last year. I'm hoping to expand my growing to Centennial, this year.

OK, looks like Cascade should do well then. I'll select something else but most of my small crop will be cascade.

Small world . . . Up in Montross I plan to grow the exact same set up. Do some bittering with the magnum, and throw the cascade liberally into just about everything!

Another Virgina home brewer here, up near Fredericksburg. The link above says to check back between mid-march and June. Seems a bit late for our planting season. Any other sources?

I was thinking about starting with 5-6 plants, maybe 2-3 cascade, and then a second complimentary variety.
