      Where is a good place to get some hop twin?
      Also, what did you use to anchor and attach your guide lines for the hops?
      I just ran some twin across the top but it is really sagging. I was thinking for next year, get some PVC with a metal rod in the middle. That way the rusty pipe, over time, will not get on the hop plants. Any thoughts on that?

      I’m using Dacron kite string attached to screw eyes on the eves and a post in the ground. So far this is holding up fine. I put it up last year, and didn’t replace it this year.

      Hi Russ,
      It’s best to start with rhizomes. They are cuttings from the roots of mature plants. Your new plants will be heartier the first year, they will all be female (you won’t have to thin out your plants before harvest) and you will know what kind of hops you have. I first looked into seeds, but couldn’t find a supplier that even knew there were different kinds of hops, much less, which kind he was selling.
