Here you are, you home brewers, grow your own hops! - a valuable constituent of the best beers. This attractive and easily grown hardy herbaceous climber can, with a fertile soil and support, zoom up to 6m (20') each year. The young shoots are said to be good for eating, either in salads or cooked.
Tom says: Grow your own beer? Don't mind if I do, this will save me a fortune. Not to mention that now I can flavour my beer to exactly my own preferences. Hops are easy to grow and incredibly vigorous and produce massive yields year after year.
