Buy Humulus lupulus 'Magnum' hop: Widely grown for beer making

This plant dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: vigorous
  • Flowering period: September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This humulus was bred by the hop research centre Hüll Hallertau in Germany and is fast becoming the favourite variety grown for beer in Europe. It is also a widely grown variety in the USA, being a hop with a clean bitterness and a subtle citrus flavour. As a plant it is a vigorous deciduous twining climber, with light green deeply lobed leaves and cone-like fragrant flowers, followed by the characteristic hops which are attractive as they are, or more importantly perhaps, great for beer making!

  • Garden care: Plant in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun, and tie in the twining shoots around the base of the support. Cut back to ground level in the spring and mulch with well-rotted manure or garden compost.

These plants die back to below ground level each year in winter, so their height will vary greatly throughout the year. I would however strongly advise against trying to keep this as an indoor plant as it will not flourish.


I want to grow some hops in my garden as I used to go hop picking in Kent as a child. I live in southport Lancashire now. Will the north be suitable to grow a hope bine. Hope so.


Hello there Yes the hops are fully hardy so will grow up north.
