Located with a distant view of the River Deben in Suffolk and open to meadows. I am trying to merge the garden with the wild indigenous plants.

East Kent Goldings hops almost ready to harvest…. Once dried they are bagged, frozen and will help make several real ale brews🍺

I never thought of doing this with my hops. Is this one mature plant Dave?

I had it originally in a large pot at our last home four years ago….. it may have been superseded by self seeding though. Very rewarding to use it in making some lovely beer and recommend you giving it a go Laura🤪

@Davidward does it make you feel sleepy 😑 💤 when the hops are on?

@pixierose I do tend to get a bit sleepy after tasting the hops in a pint or two of my ale!

Self seeded hops I grow for my home brew ale. Challenger and Kent Goldings potted two years ago and ready to go.
