All fresh hop vines are dispatched by our 24 hour delivery courier ensuring you receive them in the finest, freshest condition straight from our hop gardens.

We recommend you order Fresh over Dried garlands as they dry out in situ and effectively offer both products in one lasting just as long once dried. Fresh are also easier to install with less mess. Having a dried garland from the start is more about a traditional aesthetic. Using our historic red brick oast kilns we preserve our hop vines to a sage green finish. Each garland measures 2.5-3m in length.

Each kiln dried hop garland consists of two or three hop stems that have grown up around a naturally produced coir coconut string. The garlands grow to approximately 2.5-3 m long and 20 cm-30 cm wide before being hand picked and dried in our traditional Oast kilns.
When they arrive check the condition of your garland to ensure they have not dried out in transit. If the individual hops reform when gently closed in the palm of your hand, your Dried Hops are ready to hang immediately! If the individual Hops completely shatter when gently closed in the palm of your hand, open the lid wide and leave the hops overnight in a a damp dark cellar or garage and they will quickly re-condition.
