I would think so. Worst case maybe a bit of training. CL fences are smooth so the bine won't be able to grip it but if it can loop around the material it should hold just fine. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bine_(botany)

Yes but you would have to train them everyday, might not be worth the effort.

Just thought I'd point out that I've started growing hops again this year. Willamette, Cascade, Galena, and Columbus. I've moved to the DC area though since last year. Blog is the same as before though: Hopstarter

Hope to see you there.

Great to see hops growing in Texas (lot of folks say it can't be done). My hops sprouted, then 4 days later 4 inches of snow and snow for 6 days straight! Temps are hovering between 30 and 35 so I am waiting for this winter that would not go away - to go away. Not sure if the snow covered hop sprouts will survive or not (fifth year hops so if they don't, there will be more to replace them).http://www.growinghopsyourself.com/w...Apri11snow.jpg

Thanks for that, both the typo correction and the welcome. I have high hopes for hop growing here. I was able to get at least a couple of successful plants last year in Houston so further north ought to help. We seem to have shaken the cold weather completely as well, so full steam ahead.
