*SOLD OUT FOR 2023*
Our Fresh Hop Bine season has now finished for 2023, if you would like to order a Dried Hop Bine please click here.
Fresh Hop Bines from Castle Farm are used for decorating marquees, barns, churches and homes. They are versatile, cost-effective and beautifully coloured!
All our Hop Bines (also known as hop vines or hop garlands) are grown specifically for decoration – we cultivate them at extra wide spacing to promote the growth of flowers along the length of the Hop Bine. The bines are cut to 2.5-3m (8-10ft) length and there are naturally more hops at one end of the bines. Once arranged in position – somewhere dry with good air-circulation – they will air-dry naturally – the flowers will open, and the leaves will curl, they will keep their colour and shape all year round.
The season for fresh hop bines is very short – only from mid-August to early-September – so be quick!
Online prices are inclusive of UK delivery & are priced on a sliding scale (the more bines you order, the less they cost per bine).
Fresh Hops MUST be taken out of the box immediately after delivery and ideally hung in their final destination within 24hrs.
