Cheers to the Cascade Hops Plant

If you're looking for a dense, green, creeping vine to add charm and seclusion, lift up your glass and say cheers to the Cascade Hops Plant. Known for its important contributions to ales the world over, Cascade Hops are underappreciated and often overlooked when it comes to all the advantages they provide for planting in the backyard, garden or throughout the landscape. Make no mistake, the Hops is a beautiful and elegant vine. Large, tear-shaped leaves flanked by the delicate, hops seed cones provide warm coverage whether draped over trellises, on fencing-even on top of pergolas.

Something wonderful is Brewing in the Backyard

Decorating your outdoor retreat with the beauty of the Cascade Hops Plant is a fun and rewarding project. But imagine using the fruit of your vine to develop a homemade brew that you can drink, enjoy and continuously replenish. The hops themselves hang like little green acorns, just waiting to be harvested. Enthusiasts use them to counterbalance the sweetness of the malt and add a desirable flavor and aroma that only hops can deliver.

Our Hops are fully rooted for at least 1 growing season. This means you are getting a significant jumpstart over starting from a rhizome or planting newly rooted plants in Spring. In fall, as they enter dormancy, our Hops are trimmed back to the soil. This actually gives the roots an extra boost of growth before they become dormant. This is extremely vantageous to our customers who choose to plant in Fall or Winter as your Hops plant will be ready to establish quickly. In its very first spring your plant will experience vigorous growth and quality hop production!

Spring into action today and order your Cascade Hops Plant.

Cascade hops
I live in Western NY and worried about these plants coming back after their first growing season as we had the coldest winter in nearly 20 years in 2014/2015. They survived and grew nearly 20 feet, producing pounds of hops between the two plants. I am very pleased as are my beer brewing friends.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Cascade Hops Plant

Cascade Hops Plant Planting Diretions

Choosing a location: Hops are flowers (also called seed cones or strobiles) that are used primarily as the flavoring and stability agent in beer. They impart bitter, tangy flavors and they are also used for various purposes in other beverages and herbal medicines. Medicinally, hops have been used as a sleeping aid, for tension relief and to improve digestion. The hop is a hardy, perennial plant vine that is easily grown at home when sufficient sun and climbing space are available. Vines can grow up to 20 feet high in a single season. Direct sunlight, easy access to water, a stable support system and plenty of room for vertical growth are necessary for the ideal growing site. Well draining, loamy soil with a pH of 6.0 - 8.0 is preferred.

Planting directions (for potted plant): Despite their large size, hops grow well in containers if provided with a sturdy trellis, abundant water and ample supplemental nutrients.

1) Grow hops in full sun. Use a container with a diameter and depth of at least 20 inches. Make sure the container has several holes in the bottom for adequate drainage.

2) Fill the container with a mix of four parts potting soil and one part *perlite. Do not tamp down the soil, as this will restrict the drainage needed.                                                                                                  

*Perlite appears as tiny, roundish white specks amongst the soil. Perlite is a non-organic additive used in potting soil to aerate the media.

3) Place two 8-foot-long stakes into the potting soil along the edge of the planter and put a screw at the tip of each stake. Tie "coir yarn" (also known as hop twine) onto the screw at the top of the stakes. Wind the yarn in a crisscross pattern between the stakes. Trim the ends of the yarn off once it reaches the potting soil and then tie the ends together. This will allow your hop vines to climb.

4) Plant your hops so the buds are pointed upward in a small hole roughly 2-3 inches deep. Water so the soil is damp, but not oversaturated. Add some extra soil if water settles the dirt too much.

Planting directions (in ground): Sun exposure is the first key thing to consider when selecting a spot to grow your hops plants in the ground. For the most success with your plant you'll want over 10 hours of sun exposure. Typically the most light comes from Southern and Eastern exposures. 

1) Select a site with light, well draining soil and a soil pH in the range of 6.0 to 8.0

2) Hops like organic nutrients. They enjoy composted manures and blends of slow release nutrients like bone meal and rock phosphate mixed into the soil when planting in the hole. 

3) When planting you'll want to dig a small hole roughly 4 inches deep and then cover with 1-2 inches of soil with the hops buds pointing upward. If planting more than one hops vine space them 3-4 feet apart to keep the vines from intertwining with each other too much.

4) Trellising is very important since hops prefer to climb. Plants that are close to a fence or wall will climb along the tops of wire or lines, which you can run. This will allow you to support multiple vines

Watering: Hops love water but only when applied directly to the root system. If the leaves get wet too often it's an opportunity for mold and mildew to form on the plant. Water your plants daily directly at their bases in order to keep the soil moist, but not over saturated. In the event of rain getting your leaves wet and the sun coming out shortly thereafter it's recommended to go out and gently shake the excess moisture off. Water droplets can form miniature lenses and burn your leaves.

Fertilizing: Hops love fertilizer. Provide your container grown hops with a liquid fertilizer diluted to quarter-strength. Start out feeding them with fertilizer that's high in nitrogen. Then when the first signs of hop cones form, move away from nitrogen rich fertilizer for fertilizers that are rich in phosphorus and potassium. After feeding the vines give them a good amount of water to keep their roots from being burned.

Pruning: When pruning be sure your trimming tool has been sterilized for healthy and clean cuts (a household rubbing alcohol works just fine for sterilization). Prune hops vines once they begin to outgrow their trellis. Remove foliage from under one foot of growth on the vine. This increases air circulation and avoids the likelihood of pest infestations and disease. Remove vine tips once the main stem produces several branches. In the late summer the removal of lower leaves should be done carefully to avoid damaging the main stem. However, around August allow additional bottom growth to remain, as this will boost the hardiness of the crown and plant vigor for next year.

Harvesting: Harvesting usually begins in the middle of August and continues until the middle of September. Test the cones in order to be sure that its time to harvest.  To determine the readiness for picking judge the cones by touch and smell. If the cone is too green, feels damp and soft to the touch on its scales then it may not be ready just yet.  A cone ready for harvest will feel papery and light. If your hands quickly take up the earthy scent of hops and are slightly sticky due to the yellow powdery lupulin (which is the yellow powder of the hop cone), then the cones are ready for harvest. Hops cones must be properly dried to optimize their flavor during storage. Store your hops in an airtight container in the freezer or refrigerator.

With some effort, plenty of space and sun, growing your own hops is easy and very fulfilling. Rumor has it that homegrown hops are the best variety because they are so flavorful and will provide much self-satisfaction.

I am living in San Jose CA. My zone is 9' Could I grow hops in my area?
Sofia c on Dec 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They will grow. Sierra Nevada Brewery (Chico, CA) has a thriving hop field growing for at least 5 years.
Just keep them watered and give them something to climb. Nature will do the rest.
can these be grown in very large containers on a NYC rooftop (we have a trellis system)?
is is okay to plant them in late May (or do they need to be planted in the Fall)?
kmhkmh on May 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you certainly can grow Cascade Hops in a container. It sounds like you have a good location with plenty of sun and a good trellis to grow the vines up. This vine needs as close to full sun as you can get, and a nice-sized container, at least 20 inches across, and bigger is better. You can plant your hops pretty much any time, as you are going to be bringing it in for the winter. It grows really fast, so even if don't plant till summer, it will still perform for you. You won't get much yield of hops the first year, no matter when you plant it, but subsequent years will increase your harvest exponentially.

If I buy a HOPS plant now, is it too late?
Laurie on Jul 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is the first time we have ever grown hops so we are new to this also. We planted ours a month ago and last weekend we strung up lines for a trelis. You may not get hops until next year but i would plant them now anyway.
Hi, I would like to buy a hops vine to grow on an arch in my garden in Illinois, not for harvesting but for the beauty of the vine itself. Is the Cascade variety appropriate?
Nora M on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Casade Hops vine is a luxuriant vine that is as valuable for its beauty as for its seeds that are used in beer making. The seed pods are quite ornamental, too. It is not a shy grower and our vines are a year old already, so should cover your arch handily, even the first season. It will die back to the ground each winter (or you can cut it back in fall), and it will come back next spring to rapidly cover your arch again so you can enjoy it over the growing season. Since you are on the northern end of its hardiness area, you might want to give some winter protection to the roots, such as a heavy layer of mulch.
You mention Chicago is too cold for this plant. Does that go for South West Michigan and Northern Indiana? If those areas are good for growing, when should I purchase and plant the Cascade Hop plant since it's already October.
Mike C on Oct 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: right now. plant in good soil, mulch 1-2 inch. Plants grow very well in mid-Michigan (48625) good harvest, great aroma and bitterness.
When do I plant my cascading hops seedling, I just bought live in Mississippi I thought you planted in the fall if so what month?
Shay H on Sep 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Now is a great time for planting.
If I purchase the cascade hops plants now to plant them in containers on a Chicago rooftop deck with lots of sun, will they do well?
Jackson J on Jun 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Chicago is just outside of the recommended growing zone for this plant. I would suggest looking into something a little cold hardier. It would need a lot of care and winter protection in Chicago. It would need to be brought inside during harsh winter storms and placed by a sunny window or grow lights.
