Congrats on the hops. I just planted mine about 3 weeks ago and they have started out strong. Ill be interested to see how yours do. I chose Cascade, Centennial and Chinook to start and am looking to add one more type this year. My pics of my trellis will be up soon as I just put the posts in the ground this weekend.

I am just south of Atlanta, and the Cascade and Horizon has done well. They have about 4 hours of direct sunlight per day (from about 2 - 6 pm.). I have heard the cascade flavor/aroma is way different than northwest grown hops. Anyone that can confirm?

Hey,
I'm my name is Sara and I was wondering if you'd possibly be interested in meeting up sometime to maybe trade some ideas, and teach me a little about what you know. My roommate brews beer on the reg, but we've never tried to grow hops, and being from S.W. Georgia we're a little wary of the heat in the summer. Get back with me if you're interested in helping some fellow Georgians. you can e-mail me directly at [email protected]

I would like to piggy back on this thread. I am in N. FL / S. GA line (W of Jax). I would like to grow some hops but as you said I am thinking heat would be to much. I plant my spuds at Valentines Day and everything out of the fields by 4th of July i.e. corn, beans, maters etc.

I grew cascade last year and they took off. I grew them in an earthtainer which made it easy to not let dry out. Tons of water and not a full day of sun and they will grow. Hell they are weeds and can grow about anywhere.
