Crop Profile: Hops
Surprisingly easy to grow, hops are a gorgeous garden plant, hardy from zones 5 to 9 with soil pH requirements of 6.0 to 7.5. They die back to the ground each winter and grow up to 25 feet high during the growing season, making them the perfect choice for covering fences, trellises and arbors.
