Hop Plant Care

Growing hops is easy!  The instructions below are sent with each plant, and you can find more information on our Guides & Info page.

  • Hop plants are a hardy perennial, best planted as a bare root during the dormant winter months.
  • Hops like a well drained fertile soil and should be planted in open ground as soon as possible.
  • Make sure the hole is deep and the crown well covered.
  • Mark the spot with a screw peg.
  • Install your support (trellis, coir string) for the plant to climb up before the spring.
  • Small shoots should appear when the weather warms (April)
  • Train the shoots clockwise during May & June.
  • Harvest at the end of August.

Availability & Delivery

Dormant root stock becomes available in late November / December and is available to buy through to the following spring, as stocks last. Pre-order is available in September.

Our dormant hop plants are wrapped with damp moss and are happy in transit for several weeks. Any delay will not affect the viability or health of your plants and they can still be planted mid-winter in January.

We use Royal Mail to delivery our hop plants.

We do not send bare root hop plants overseas.

Hop Plant T&Cs

All of our plants are checked for viability and the presence of new shoots before we send them. We are confident that if you follow our care instructions you will have a happy hop plant.  Do keep in mind that your plant will not reach its full growth potential until the third season, after it has put down roots and got established.  In the event that your plant is not successful please get in touch here.
