This is my first time so be gentle with me.:p I have four different varieties of hops 1 Galena, 2 Columbus, 2 Chinook, 4 Cascade. I plan on making a nice pole and cable trellis for the Cascade since there are four of them. And just use the single pole Tee Pee method for the others. Question is how far apart should I space the other poles from the Cascade? I was thinking a straight line layout but would love to hear other ideas. Oh and I have plenty of land for this , might even go crazy big next year.

Once again thank you in advance you guys rock :rockin:

On the tee pee pole the issue is not how far apart the plants are but how close the tops are so you can know what you are harvesting
