Hops are coming up
« on: March 17, 2011, 18:14:46 PM »

My 4 year old Nugget hops broke ground yesterday and my Cascade hops broke ground today (3/17) in Carbondale. No sign from Sterling, Centennial, and Goldings that I started last year.

Just curious, what do you use to support them as they get taller?

If you'd like to go nuts and get pounds of hops, use a large pole (galvanized tubing or black locust tree?) and attach a wire to a steak near the hop plant and attach the other end of the wire to the top of the pole. You may need stilts though
