I think so- maybe mulch them to help.I'm new to the site and did search for this first. Does anyone know if i can keep my hop plants in pots through the cold Wisconsin winter? I'll hang up and listen. Thank in advance.
Right. The ground is the best place for the hops crowns, especially in the Northwoods where the snow provides great "mulch" and insulation. But if you can't get them in the ground, like if you need to move them, a pot will work if you can insulate it very well.It would help. If you push your pots as close together as possible, it will reduce some of the mulch needed. Don't neglect getting some of the mulch down in between though...every little bit will help insulate.
