FOR SALE IN NZ ONLY
*! SHOP CLOSES MIDNIGHT SUNDAY 9TH DECEMBER !*
We sell fully-rooted one and two year old hop plants. Our hop plants are grown in previous seasons and available for shipping when they break dormancy around SEPTEMBER.
Be the first to know when plants are available for pre-order and when new varieties are released.
For orders of 6 or more hops please contact us via the contact page.
If the demand is such that we sell out of one or two year old plants, we can offer plants propagated in the current season that will grow just fine, but are slightly trickier to put into their permanent growing position.
If you have had any growing experience at all then these plants should be easy enough to transplant.
