    So you want to grow your own hops, huh? The long and short of it is that the things grow as fast as bamboo and need constant management from April to September. Still want to grow hops? Awesome, here's one way to set up a small backyard hops garden that yielded almost a pound of wet hops, in...

    My Hop Is Dying?

    Hello, everyone! About 4 months ago my hop (cascade rhizome) started to grow. Was a good and fast grow, with a beautiful plant. But, about 3 or 4 weeks ago my hop started to show some disease. There are a lot of leafs with this problem: it starts to dry on the corners, then die. This is...

    Where to plant hops in high heat relative to the sun(Dallas/Ft Worth)

It is mostly south/slightly west facing and would receive sun pretty much from sunup-sundown. What i am most concerned about is the late afternoon...

    First-Timer Questions

    I'm planning on buying some rhizomes for the first time. I've got a garden in my back yard that's almost perfect...a tall tree on one side (and a soon-to-be-pole on the other). I've got a couple questions, though. I think I want to get 1 Mt. Hood, and 1 Magnum rhizome. Is there any...
