How to Use Zeus Hops in the Landscape

Grow Hops on a sturdy prefab trellis, or construct a time-tested pole trellis system. These beautiful bines deliver fragrant flowers, dark green foliage and ornamental stacked cones.

A pole trellis system for Zeus Hops adds plenty of year-round architectural interest to your landscape. Place these long, showy plants where they'll work hard for your family and friends.

Plant them at least 40 inches apart on center in an area that receives excellent air circulation. Use them on the south side of your patio for a built-in shade structure.

Use them to screen off the utilitarian aspects of modern life. Wouldn't you rather look at your developing crop than your garbage cans?

No matter where you use them, they will spark conversation. You've probably already noticed that people are curious about the beer-making process.

Rock everyone's world by planting Zeus Hops next to Mars Grapes. We can only imagine your new nicknames!

#ProPlantTips for Care

Plant Hops in full sun, where they'll get at least six hours of sunlight a day. They need well-drained soil; mound up with fertile, sandy loam if needed to improve drainage.

Apply a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. Add mulch to keep the root system nice and cool, but pull it back away from touching the stems for proper air circulation.

Each year when the young bines are about six inches, you'll need to train them clockwise around your support structure. Stay aware of your crop during this time, and give them a helping hand as needed.

While this is a disease-resistant variety, some growers do add a schedule of protective early treatments for mildew. Once your bines reach 10 feet or so, take the lower leaves off the first few feet at ground level to increase air flow.

Grow your own hops for unparalleled flavor and aroma. Place your order for Zeus Hops from Nature Hills today!
