All of our hop plants are commercial varieties grown for brewing, except for GOLDEN TASSELLS. They are English produced and certified material from virus tested stock.
Each variety differs slightly in colour, shape & size, and aroma & alpha acid content (which is important for brewers). All the varieties produce the beautiful lime green flower cone late summer in the UK and is an attractive climbing addition to any garden. The best time to plant hops is during the winter months when the plant is dormant, but please be aware, hops need cold conditions in the winter, particularly Goldings and Bramling Cross otherwise they will not grow, so we will not replace or refund overseas orders that do not thrive.
