  1. Wow! Nice growth. What I planned to do for mine is use those retractable clothes lines under my garage eaves. Not sure of the distance between your trees, or if you can find one that stretches far enough, but it would give the bines several lines to grow horizontally.

    It would increase the surface area for horizontal growth as they have a few lines for hanging clothes. Train a lead onto each line. Not sure of the weight of a fully grown hop plant so you may need to add support midway so the line does not break. On the other hand, if they support wet clothes they may be strong enough.

    If I may ask, what do you use for fertilizer? I am just starting out with growing hops.
