I recently moved into a new home and the backyard is a mess. Just completely covered in weeds. So seeing as the weather is already nice, I decided to plant my rhizomes in half barrels until I can tame the yard. I opted for Cascade and Columbus, as those seem to survive the heat, according to feedback from home brewers in the area.
I decided to go with a soil mix as opposed to straight potting soil. I did 60% native sandy soil, 30% bagged garden soil and 10% Fertilizer. This way I can easily transplant it next season, and it will be accustomed to the native soil.
This is my first time growing hops, so I'm pretty excited.
