Do hops have any animals - like rabbits - that like to eat them?
Alan K on Jul 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. No plant or tree is completely rabbit-resistant, but hops would be a second or third choice for bunnies. It's not their favorite because they don't like the texture.
Can they be grown indoors?
Janell H on Jun 26, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. No, hops should not be grown inside. Their roots need too much room to spread out, and a container is just not large enough to support the growth. These are not small plants when they grow

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
