    If you search thoroughly some of the years gone by Hop Plantation threads, you should find lots of images of people doing a good job of growing them in pots. It's important to ensure they have enough nutrients and get plenty of water.

    you can buy fabric (root pruning) or plastic (black poly) grow bags in much larger sizes, fwiw.

    Hi fellow hop growers,
    I have two hop crowns to give away. One Victoria and one Hallertau. Both about 3 years old. Still in the ground at the moment and not sprouting yet. Vic grows well in Canberra and produces well, Hallertau not so much as it's too hot. It would need a good spot to grow well and I don't have one. I'm located in Belconnen ACT, pick-up only please.
    Cheers Pasi

    well were off and racing again, and again the fuggles are well out of the pot faster and stronger than the cascade, however both last year and the year before the fuggles have hit the wall and the cascades motored past them, i wonder if the last couple of sumemrs have been to hot for the fuggles being an English variety?

    Day length is an issue with Fugglies. They will grow ok in Brisbane and northwards going on what others have gotten from them. They probably won't do much good in Tassie because it is not far enough south.

    I think you need to make a few more posts before anyone can message you.

    that statement sort of contradicts itself?

    Day length is longer in Tasmania than Brisbane during summer. You need to get down to the latitude of New Zealand's South Island for Fugglies to start doing ok. Once day length gets too long they stop growing. Same thing with Tettnang.

    Thats very interesting given they are an english variety and they have longer days.
