Hop Varieties

Hop plants are sold as bare-root rhizomes when dormant - usually between November and April. Later in the season rooted plants may be available in 1 litre deep pots. Plants/rhizomes are priced from £6.95 each plus postage except for those requiring royalty payments which are a bit more expensive. 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.
