Traditionally, garlands of hops were hung fresh every year for good luck in the pubs and farmhouses of the hop-growing areas of the UK: Kent, Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

Hops are ideal for dressing a scene or camouflaging an area, like the Oast House in the picture which is covered in fresh hops.

Dried hops are available all year round and fresh hops are available in August and September.

Price is per vine which is approximately 3m (10ft) long.

Hops are not for consumption.
