Now I am aware of a few bloggers who have done this and reaped the rewards, but none of them in anywhere as far north as Northumberland. But as it was my birthday present I thought I would finally get round to giving it a go. Apparently the tubs have to be kept indoors for a few weeks and germination takes 2-3 months. After that they are unleashed into the elements of Northumberland and if I will be very chuffed if I get any cones off them.
Sadly it doesn't tell you what hop variety your growing but if I do manage to grow any hops from it my plan would be to use them for dry hopping.
