SHOP IS OPEN FOR ORDERS

- MAIL OUT EVERY MONDAY EXCEPT PUBLIC HOLIDAYS -

MOST OF OUR HOP PLANT VARIETIES ARE AVAILABLE ALL YEAR ROUND.
BETWEEN SEPTEMBER & APRIL WE SEND GROWING PLANTS AND BETWEEN MAY & AUGUST WE SEND DORMANT PLANTS WHICH ARE CHECKED FOR VIABLE SHOOTS BEFORE DISPATCH. ALL PLANTS ARE A MINIMUM OF 1 - 2 YEARS OLD, GROWN THE PREVIOUS SEASONS, UNLESS NOTED.

NZ POST DELIVERIES

- NZ Post are experiencing delivery delays of up to 2 days -

During Winter we are sending only robust previous season propagation plants which are at least a year old and are also currently dormant which will extend the plants survival in the NZ Post & Courier network. Before packing, the plants are checked for viable new season buds which will emerge in Spring. If there is a choice between a Standard plant and a FASTRAX™ Advanced plant, we strongly recommend choosing a FASTRAX™ for their enhanced ability to survive transport. Due to their larger root base and superior growth capacity you also get a one year head start, compared to a standard plant, with a crop of hops in the first year so it's a win-win all round.

NB: NZ Post have recently increased rates on parcels by an average of $4.00

FIRST CROP

MARCH 2022 HARVEST
"Hi there. I've just harvested my first crop of Rakau, Orange Sunrise and Tangerine Dream from the plants I bought from you. I am very happy with my bounty, and I look forward to buying more plants from you, expanding my hop orchard, and seeing the plants bed in and keep producing. Thanks!" [Picture is of Rakau]
