Cascade rhizome in Dublin?

The place to discuss ingredients, whether about their properties, growing or creating your own.

Hey a friend/neighbour has got himself an allotment, and offered me space to grow hops in return for some beer. This sounds eminently more sensible than me trying to get an allotment and grow lots of stuff on it when I could be at home drinking or brewing beer...

So - anyone in Dublin got a Cascade plant I could get a few cuttings from, or is it too late for this year?

Too late now but The Mottly Brew is going to be selling a range of hops next year at planting time if you're willing to wait. Other option is to fork out for a plant thats already growing.

Not neccessarily too late!

If you can get some plants from the UK(various suppliers) or Germany(Eickleman) plant them now and they will grow.

Ok not likely to get many hops this year but you will have given them a head start for next year.

If anyone has any cuttings they could give you then ditto the above.

Think it's probably best at this stage to wait until next year. When is planting season for hops?

Qs, hadn't heard about Mottly Brew, will definitely pay it a visit!

Are you sure you have somewhere to grow it Anton? Cascade is not a dwarf hop. Expect it to grow 3 meters tall and it'll need something that high to climb on.
Fermentor: Nothing :(
Conditioning: Export Stout (8% Vol.) & Porter (5% Vol.)
Serving: Ale (4.5% Vol.)
