Curious about the Hop plant. It has more uses than just beer flavoring. Ornamental and can flavor simple teas too.

Cover\Shade for deck trellis. Attractive looking, different, and hops offer a variety of alternative uses besides brewing beer (though I'd love to learn that skill).

Can they be put in large pots so they can be moved inside for the winter in zone 4?
Duane S on Jun 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Duane. I purchased mine from Starks in 2015. This is the second season.
I used some of this years flowers to make beer. I got about .6oz of hops from the one plant I bought. It would take a lot of plants to make enough to hop beer entirely with fresh flowers. My plants are outside. All top growth dies in winter, leaving only the root. If I had the desire or need to move potted plants inside, I would certainly give it a try the fact that all vegetation dies, and the fact that the energy is stored in a single bulb would seem to indicate that it would work. The add says that the hops Ripen in August - perhaps I picked mine too early, but I picked some flowers end May and used them for the beer. Hope this helps. Charles
What is a reasonable # of plants with which to start?
Lars L on May 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I purchased 2 cascade hops and one nugget hop last year. The cascade hops grew very little but the nugget hop produced enough hops to compliment one homebrew. This year, year two, the cascade hops are only slightly better, but the nugget hop has exploded with vines, some tendrils growing as much as 10" per day. After last fall's harvest, I cut the bine into segments and then buried the sections. The bines have sprouted up in multiple places and I now have multiple nugget vines. I expect a very generous nugget hop harvest this year.

2nd year and my hops are really taking hold. Vines chin high and hardy in late May. Hope they make it to the top of the pergola this year. We waited years to pick the right plant to grow up and over and I think we got it right. Can't wait for buds.

Second year growth
I planted in Spring 2015, not much happened that summer. Spring 2016 brought an explosion. It's July and the vines are growing up the lattice work by our deck. They have thickened nicely, and little hop buds are forming. Looking forward to harvesting.

Unsure but still hopeful
I have high hopes for these hops yet. I got them in the ground a little late but followed the instructions to a t. Nothing is sprouting yet this year so I am hoping to see something soon but wouldn't be surprised if I have to wait til next spring. I suppose I may have gotten a dud as well but I guess we'll see.

Hops rhizomes
6 of the plants I ordered and planted never sprouted. The others have survived the winter and sprouted nicely.
