I would like to grow hops in my herb garden so I'm looking for advice. I can't seem to find much on their propagation. Do you grow them from seed or tubers? Where did you get the seeds/tubers? I'd like to grow golden hops because I saw them once in the beautiful herb garden at a country house in England, Hardwick Hall. They were gorgeous.
Anyone grow Hops?
I wish I knew how they got in my front garden! Thought I'd ripped them all out last year, but noooooo, back again they came! From what I hear, they're really easy to grow, and if I'm not mistaken, they grow easily from seed. I think I saw them advertised in one of the bazillion seed catalogs I get.....sorry I can't remember which one. You might want to do a search for them unless anyone else knows how to get them. (Wish you could come get these out of my garden!) Good luck to you.

PS: If you intend to grow the hops to make beer, Nichol's Nursery has all the supplies (including dried hops) you'll need. http://www.gardennursery.com/ngncat.htm
Try Richters Herbs, in their 2001 catalogue on page 29 they have 8 different Hops listed. www.richters.com
Great herb catalogue, is my herb bible, has wonderful explantation about what different herbs are used for 'culinary, beverage plant, industrial, medicinal, aromatic, poisionous - use with caution'.
