Spreading hops to Virginia :-)

Here's the proof. Pics of the rhizomes I shared with my brother-in-law. Already sprouting.

Where in the Commonwealth is your bro? I grow Cascade, Nugget, Fuggles and Perle just outside of Richmond.

I've been enjoying your blog...

Thanks for stopping by. Any advice for him. Last I heard he wasn't impressed with their progress, but, I haven't seen any pictures.

Norfolk area :-)

Mine never got over 8 ft. the first year, but in the second they hit 20+, so he just needs to be patient. He'll be much happier next year. That part of the state gets more rain than we do, so that's good too.

Thanks Keith. I'll have to pass that along.

Which, if any, hop varieties do you think might do well on an old tobacco farm in the Danville area?

Good question Tyler, I'll have to defer to the folks in this group...
