So I just got finished building a little 4x4 bed for a hop garden I'm hoping to get started on this week...it's also 2 feet above the ground to help keep the hops safe from critters. This is all the space I have because the rest of the yard is fenced in for the dogs...there was just a little 6 foot strip outside the fence before the creek so I built the biggest area I could on the left and then ran line diagonally to a pole on the right. There's enough line for growth up to about at least 30 feet - so no problem there.
Now my question is...how many rhizomes can I plant in this space? My LHBS has a few extra that they ordered and I told them I'd swing by tomorrow if possible. My guess is that I can only fit one plant. If so, how much can I expect year over year from only the one plant?
Thanks in advance for the help...
