Hi All,

We have just bought our first home and get to move in another 6 weeks. Since I have been brewing for a while I thought this would be a great time to grow hops.

I guess my main question is does anyone have any tips. My main types will be POR for my swill and Cascade for my Pale Ales. Chances are after I start growing a few varieties I will try to expand to more and more.

Strictly speaking, hops cannot grow North of Port Macquarie due to day lengths.

Nobody has told this to hops.

You should be fine where you are. Main problem would be wind, so grow them in a sheltered position.
