Hop Varieties

Hop plants are sold as bare-root rhizomes when dormant - usually between November and March. Later in the season rooted plants may be available in 1 litre deep pots. Plants/rhizomes are priced between £7.50 - £8.95 each plus postage. It is much cheaper to ship bare-rooted rhizomes than fully rooted plants and postage charges increase considerably later in the year. If you want plants shipped outside of the UK then it is far more economical to order rhizomes when they are available. Current shipping rates and carriers can be found here.
