Hello folks,

I've just got a couple of comments about the hops I planted
earlier this spring. I've got three plants with three main
vines coming off each plant. The vines on one plant are nearly
six feet tall however the other two have only inched along to
about 3 feet. The only difference I could see is that the 6' vines
are climbing up natural jute line and the 3' vines are climbing up
poly-nylon string. Could the nylon string slow the growth of the
vines?

Anyway, I replaced the nylon string with natural jute so we will
if this makes any difference.
