HOPS RHIZOMES

All Varieties are Female

  • Hops grow well in a well drained sandy loam with a ph of 6-7.5.
  • Plant 2 rhizomes per hill with buds pointing up.
  • Cover with 1 inch of soil.
  • Requires frequent watering
  • If not planted immediately - keep in a plastic bag and in the refrigerator to keep from drying out.
  • Feed with an all purpose fertilizer
  • Offer nitrogen in late spring. You can tell if plant is nitrogen-deficient by its color - you want it to be a rich dark green color.
  • Trellis to support hop vines by tying twine onto a horizontal trellis wire and staking the twine vertically into the ground near the plant. Train the hop vines clockwise around the vertical twine to support it.
    Take 3-4 main vines from each rhizome and prune the rest.
  • Yields will be sparse the first growing season. Plants take 2-3 years to fully produce hop cones.
  • After harvest dehydrate the hops and store them in a freezer or refrigerator to keep their freshness.
