Plant Fuggles organic hops rhizomes for the aroma of its strongly scented flowers. This aroma adds a whole new dimension to a wide assortment of beer recipes. Fuggles adds a mild, subdued, subtle note of lightly bitter, floral hoppiness and vegetative smokiness that makes it perfect for use in craft brewing. Hops grows super fast, and super tall before dying back at the end of the season. Be sure to provide an adequate trellis, or grow it straight up a long cable or pole. Flowers mature in late summer for drying and use in home beer making. Fuggles is a rare variety for the beer gourmet.

Here is all the information you need on how to grow hops. Hops make a dramatic addition to ornamental gardens. Highly decorative, fast growing, trouble free, and cold hardy, hops give a flare and interest to gardens that few other plants do. Ideal for trellises and arbors and as a fast growing perennial hop bines are perfect for creating a privacy screen at the back of the garden. And no, bine is not a typo! A bine is any plant with a stem that twists around something as it grows. Hops are herbaceous perennials. Expect them to die back to the ground in the winter and to leap back to life in the spring.
