G'day fellas just wondering if anyone on here has had any success growing hops in the Hunter? If so what varieties? very interested in trying to grow some this year.
I live on Central Coast and also recommend Chinook, as well as Cluster.Drewgong, I highly recommend joining the Aussie Hop Head Chat facebook group. Stuart and Brad that admin the group are commercial growers/horticulturists and have a wealth of information and assistance to offer. I live in the Hunter Valley and had a good first year. I've got chinook and cascade which seem to love it here, especially the chinook went nuts. Got about 400g off it this season, I even took a green cutting off it just because I could which has established itself well. Seems to be the right climate here for them
A few of those varieties are proprietary, which means no chance getting them for us backyardies,thanks Hoppy are you in the Hunter?
Cascade is definitely on my wishlist with galaxy simcoe centennial Amarillo el Dorado por so long as I'm able to buy them of course . i don't think I've ever tried chinook. Is there any I've listed you have tried that did not do well up here?
