How to Grow Your Own Hops

The hop is a hardy perennial plant that is easily grown at home, provided it has sufficient sunlight and space to grow. Growing hops is an especially gratifying hobby in the Pacific Northwest. Oregon is the second largest hop producing state in the US where moderate temperatures during the summer are favorable for growing high quality aroma-hops.
