Hop Planting 2018

Establishing the hop garden

In beautiful winter light, the first stage of the hop garden (as yet to be un-named) was planted on the 6th of January 2018.

I planted four Cascade (furthest in the pictures) and four Fuggles (closest) rhizones into ground prepared with compost and fertiliser.

Now what to call the garden? “The Western Beacons Hop Garden”, “The Black Mountains Hops”…?
