Part II – How To Grow Hops Tip
One way to grow hops in your back yard, non-commercial setup for private use.
Hops are bines and they like to climb. We use a cow field panel flipped on its side and we used a grinding cutter to shorten it a little bit to size. Once it climbs the top, from there it transfers naturally to the ropes.
I like to guide them when they are just getting over the top.
We used a recycled wooden pallet to make a hook hanger and attached it to the side of the house. Of couse the side of the house is facing South (where majority of the sun will be).
Always take into consideration light source and quality when planting anything.
