As the UK’s premier hop propagator, we have over 40 years experience in hops. We endeavor to produce the highest quality plants that are produced from elite Permanent Layer Beds tested free of Hop Latent Viroid and Canker. All plants are grown under strict disease control and are inspected by DEFRA to comply with the stringent rules laid out for the A Plus scheme.
At A Plus Hops we have been producing hop roots, to supply to the hop growing trade since 1963. We produce the highest quality plants out of the main stream growing area for isolation purposes. For the first time now we are able to offer both bare root plants and plants in 2 litre pots. This means that now we are able to supply plants virtually all year around.
For many years wholesale nursery growers have been able to supply the golden hop Humulus lupulus aureaus, and seedling hops that do not always grow hop cones, thus disappointing their customers. In addition the wild hops are nearly all male hops which do not produce cones and are always larger plants gaining some 15 to 18ft in height.
For the smaller gardeners this has often put them off buying hops. To this end we are able to supply two varieties of dwarf hops, Prima Donna and Golden Tassels. These two varieties are superb for those gardeners as they only reach approximately 10ft and look superb in planters and garden containers or planted in the garden alongside existing plants or even in a small hop garden.
All plants are grown under strict disease control and are inspected by DEFRA to comply with the stringent rules laid out for the A Plus scheme. The reason the unit is situated in the rural Suffolk countryside is to prevent the plants becoming infected by viroids, wilt, and other diseases.
For the first time we are now able to offer disease free plants from abroad including favourites from the U.S, Germany, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
