I have 8 varieties of hop planted on two poles 8 feet apart. They all have their own wire to climb. Do I have to worry about cross pollination between the varieties? Some are bittering, most are aroma.

As long as you only have females, the only potential for pollination would be from wild hops...

Cheers!
