I have been growing 2 "Nugget" hop plants as an experiment to see how they would do out here. We haven't had a long heat wave yet so not completely sure how they will handle that but so far,the experiment is a huge success!
They were planted on March 15th or 10 weeks ago and are close to 8 feet tall on their way to 20+ feet. They bloom in late summer and my friend at work and my son are both anxiously awaiting them...
Here are the pictures so far of how they are doing..

|3 weeks and now they are taking off!|
|10 Weeks - they reached almost to the floor of my deck so I have had to string them to the roof of the deck now.|
