Planting & Care
Grow hops in a location that receives full, all-day sunlight and with well-drained soil. Work in a 2-inch layer of compost and 2 tablespoons of all-purpose fertilizer per plant before transplanting the hops to improve soil quality.
Plant hops roots 12 inches deep in late winter or early spring. Space the roots 3 feet apart along the base of the support. Run a heavy wire or trellis string from the top of the support down to each planted root and anchor the wire to the ground with a U-shaped garden stake.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 5°C (41°F )

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Water hops once or twice weekly, providing about 1 inch of water each time or enough so the top 12 inches of soil remains moist.
  • Cover the soil with a 2-inch layer of straw or bark mulch to help retain soil moisture and prevent weeds.

  • Prune out the excess hops shoots when they grow to a 12-inch length so only two or three vines remain on each plant.
  • Wind these shoots clockwise around the support wires until they begin to climb on their own.
