Growing my own hops


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.

Been thinking of giving this ago for awhile but never seen the seeds or plant in any local places. Where did you manage to find yours?

You'll have good fun. Mine are coming on a treat down the allotment.

The wife got them from Amazon for my birthday. You could be right Mark but you do have the advantage of being in the South West.
