My husband has started growing hops. I think they are close to the Marijuana family, at least that's what I heard. We were thinking of growing them eventually all along the fence around the pond, just because they grow so quickly every year and I would love how it would look.

But, i'll bet doing that leaves and stuff would fall into the pond.
So has anyone seen anything about hops being poisonous?
I'm googling and stuff right now as well.
Thanks!

ohhh ok great thanks! My husband was right then. I must have read it wrong.

That's why we're growing the hops :bouncycig: we brew beer as a little hobby and thought it'd be great to have our own hops to use, now that we have a yard to grow them in.

Thanks

Yes hops are toxic if you drink to much you may get sick or pass out.
The next morning you may still be sick and have a very bad headache.

I need to get another Swamp Hibiscus as my last one didn't make it though winter. Never had a plant that got so much attention. I would get so many strange looks when people saw it. They would either just stare for a long while and say nothing or they would glance and ask me if it was a pot plant.
