Book on growing hops 9 years 4 months ago #1

Hi guys could any of you recommend a book on growing hops ? I am trawling the internet but there does not appear to be too much available on the subject. <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

There's two books available from Amazon but they both suck and focus as much/more on growing your own barley and brewing herbs. An over-focus on brewing pests, too if you ask me and not enough practical advice or information on trellis design.


The free info on the internet is FAR better than either of the two widely available books.

There's a free PDF floating around on running your own small-scale organic hop farm that's even better than either of those books, too.



-It's sad, but true; if someone writes a good book on growing hops it should sell well. (Heck the two crap books have sold pretty well.)

It's a very niche subject, and there's not a lot to say about growing them. A book on growing azeleas would probably have a wider appeal and sell better but would contain equally as few pages.
