Got a few 3 year hops on a V trellis system. How many bines per line are recommended. I was thinking 3-4, making it 6-8 per plant, would be sufficient since they are 3 years but I'd like to get a more experienced opinion. Last year I think I did too many plus the drought w/ lack of drip irrigation (one has been installed ) really set me back.

I do 3 per line frome each plant and trim the rest back.
Got Hops?

There is no problem to big or small not to be fixed by enough beer!
Just do not have your beer held hostage by the wife or you will never get anything halfway done!

You have a pic of your trellis. Have five plants and need to build a trellis but don't know a good design.
