This creature appeared mysteriously in our office shortly after the earthquake. He managed to frighten one or two staff before fleeing the scene to scare the good people of Richmond. Great to meet James from #LakeManBrewing. 3 weeks 1 day ago.
New Zealand Hops
Early November means it's time to tell a hop training story...Pictured here is an example of a trained hop plant which with a little human intervention has been set-up to start a couple of hop bines. This is the Wakatu variety and a trainer has wrapped three shoots up the right side string and two shoots up the left side string It is this rotational growth that supports the plant and creates the bine. FAQ “does the rotation differ depending on hemisphere”? Nope, it’s clockwise no matter where they grow, it’s known in botanical speak as an autonomous growth trait…it can’t be influenced. 1 month 1 week ago.
