Used for ornamental purposes as well as for various edible ones. This strong growing vine produces the hops famed for beer making, the young shoots have been used simmered in lightly salted water with a flavour akin to asparagus. The large divided leaves turn rich ochre gold in the Autumn and the golden bracts combine at this time to perfect effect.
Can be grown over arch, pergola, or through a tree. Suits most soils in sun or part shade.
Sending a tree through the post isn't easy, so our parcels are expertly packed to keep your goods in the best condition. There is no surcharge on the delivery of larger parcels/orders.
Tree size as supplied varies but is usually between 3.5' - 4.5' on despatch. A few varieties might be slightly smaller, some a little bigger, of course it does vary but this is a good average. WE SUPPLY YOUNG TREES - and are proud to do so. Although we are sometimes requested to supply older/bigger trees, the percieved advantages are outwighed by disadvantages! Older trees take longer to establish and will fruit no more quickly. The young trees we send out grow away and establish so quickly and healthily & often yield within 1 season of planting. Our customers even report fruits the first year of planting! All professional fruit growers prefer to plant young trees rather than older.
Our soft fruit bushes are usually 2 years old.
Everything is stringently graded, grown on the nursery and well packed!
