Caring for Hops

    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.
