Its getting really warm here now. So the rhizomes are about to start growing. Once they come out of dormancy I am forced to stop digging. There may be a few extra bits and pieces but what’s in stock is what I can guarantee. I cannot guarantee any more stock after this lot.
Just letting everyone know. All backorders have been filled now and I have removed the back order option for this year, as I cannot guarantee numbers from here on out. What we have will be in stock and once thats sold its gone. I can guarantee the Chinook I dug up today will be the last of that stock for 2021. Stock levels will be sporadic from here on out until we have nothing left for the 2021 rhizome season. I will now be adding stock as I dig it up. So the numbers are limited from here thats why all the special prices on rhizomes have also been removed.
If you are still interested in buying hops rhizomes in 2021, dont wait around because we will sell out of rhizome stock sometime in the next few weeks. Once we sell out thats it for rhizomes until June 2022.
Please remember if you are paying through direct bank payments. You need to complete the payment manually or your order will not be paid and subsequently will be cancelled.
Well the new website is cranking along nicely. Much more streamline than before.
I am aware we are getting a little low in stock on a few rhizomes. Ill be digging more this week. If its on back order it just means there are none in stock in the fridge and Ill just have to dig some more so this will take me a day or two longer than usual. If there is no back order option we are likely out or I cannot guarantee good stock so unless I find some good stock they will likely not come back into stock until 2022 now. Im endeavoring to keep stock levels up but as per usual August is extremely busy.
We’re setting up to have a big plant sale at the start of spring. Not sure where this will happen just yet as im still trying to book somewhere in. Hopefully around Mylor as that will just make it far easier for us.
A few ornamentals as well as many things I havent listed.
Should be pretty fun. I have most things potted up and just getting a bit of size on them now.
As per usual a massive thankyou has to go out to all our wonderful customers who are supporting our business though these hard times.
Well its been cold and wet. Some hail. Id love it to snow again but its a bit rare here. Whats not rare is seriously large hail events in winter! With 8.8kws of solar panels you know its really wet when they make less than 3kws in a day combined. We max out at almost 50wkh a day in summer. Hope everyone is enjoying the new website that is much easier to navigate than the old one. We’re still working on making it amazing. Close however the accounts section still does need some work.
New Cascade, Target and Rudi rhizomes dug today. Getting ready for the August rush as per usual. We should have plenty however just keep in mind if it gets warm fast in September I cant keep digging rhizomes.
Well a much needed big upgrade of the website. Hopefully this makes it easier to use and everyone likes the new look.
Thanks for the continuing support. We’re still digging rhizomes. Had a massive hail storm tonight which they will enjoy. Still shipping every day of the week.
Lockdown sale has been extended. Grab a bargain now!
G’day everyone. Finally we have managed to get some Bearded Iris up for sale. Slight price reduction on those as we introduce them.
Hops rhizome digging is going pretty well. Ive pulled up most varieties now. Shipping of pre orders will be commencing early next week as promised.
Hops rhizomes will be selling all winter or until I completely run out of supply.
Thanks for your support through 2021 everyone.
We’ve opened up a little early for Rhizome pre orders this year. So you can order now and not miss out. Obviously if you buy multiple different varieties it’ll take a little longer for them to be shipped to you, as it takes a while for me to dig the stock up. If only buying a single variety we’ll ship them as soon as we have them in stock. Not everything is available as yet because Ill need to have a look and see what kind of quantity of Saaz we have. I had a quick look and looks like we are going to be able to supply some Saaz this year finally. Its a pretty slow grower compared to the US varieties.
Hoping to get any pre orders shipped by late June. As per usual all our rhizomes are shipped ready to store in your fridge until planting time when the soil is warming up.
If you would like to learn some more about hops growing whilst you wait for your pre order to arrive. Grabbing our E-Book will certainly help you get your head around these new plants. Its $7.99 and is a wealth of information. With soil preparation and trellis building tips and ideas. It covers everything you need to know as a first year hops grower. This was written by me as I kept getting asked if there were any good books.

We’ve been picking and drying hops the last 2 week. We’re starting to package more and more now and stock level are going back up. Target and Dr Rudi are soon to come out the oast. Hoping to have 200g Target bags up for sale by Monday the 21st March.
Im running a little bonus from the 20th March to the 27th March 2021. All orders will receive a free Silver Springs logo car sticker. So good time to grab some whole-cone hops farm direct! Its pretty impossible to get hops this fresh from over seas. As we all know fresh is best when it comes to the flower(hops) that we use for aromas and flavours in our beer!
We’re happy to say Batch 1 of dried whole cone Chinook has been released from the 2021 harvest. Its hops harvesting time so more dried whole cone hops will be flowing back into stock very soon.
