Looking for a fast growing hops?
If you are looking for the fastest growing hop plant to provide quick cover for a trellis or pergola, you might be looking for a more vigorous variety. Good varieties to go for in this case are Cobbs, Whitbread, Northern Brewer, Notts Eastswell, Mathon, and Redsells.
All hop varieties will grow to around 3 to 5 metres tall (apart from dwarf varieties), and reach maturity towards the end of summer. Some varieties will mature earlier than others, in other words their hop cones will be developed earlier – you can filter by ‘Harvest Time’ in our bare root hop plants page.
Once your plant has reached the height you want, pinch the top and this will encourage your plant to start producing more side shoots.
