I just finished building a pergola for my hops... Do you guys think this will work as it should? I don't really have the option of doing the big 16' tall lines cause we have close neighbors and a home owners association and we were afraid someone might complain... Im about to order some rhizomes. I've heard alot of people recommend "freshops.com", anyone know a better source? I'm planning on going with cascade and williamette I wanted to get perle cause i saw that was the main hop in the rogue dead guy ale(or a clone of it) but it says it doesn't do well in hot/dry areas and i live in northeast georgia so it gets pretty hot in the summer.. I know im getting a late start... i dont really expect to harvest much this year, I just wanna get it a good start for next year. Anyone got any good advice before i plant? I was planning on using half compost and half PRO-MIX bx
and then plant-tone
as my main vegetative organic nutrient then bat guano
for the flowering season. Will the hops be okay with FULL sun? I hear people say hops like well drained soil... should i add extra sand or perlite?
