hops in 15 gallon fabrics pots
« on: June 05, 2020, 06:59:42 am »
i have a magnum and a hallertau(us) in 15 gallon fabrics pots,  i'm having alot of work done in my yard so i cant put them in the ground this year, so far the magnum is growing well, the hallertau lagging behind, both are field grade they were small plants when i bought them not rhizomes, so for the first year they should be good in pots right?

Not as good as they would be in the ground, but yeah.

You'll have to pay more attention to a fertilizing and watering schedule.  That said, those pots should be plenty big for successful container hop growing.
