Subject: Growing Hops
Date: 1989-08-15 14:30:54 GMT
I've seen several people commenting in this digest recently about
growing their own hops. I've recently bought a house, and am in the
process of landscaping my weed-filled yard. I was hoping some
enlightened hops farmers out there could give me some more information
about growing them.
Specifically, what type of conditions do I need to grow hops? I live in
Sonoma County, California (50 miles north of San Francisco). We have
standard warm and dry California summers with cool nights, and heavy
clay soil. Also, what do you think about hops as far as a landscaping
plant - is it something you'd want in your back yard? And finally, I'd
like to find a source for brewing-quality hops.
Thanks in advance for your help. Any information or pointers to other
sources would be appreciated.
