Both the leaves and the bine of hop plants are by nature rough and abrasive, in addition the hop flowers contain a substance similar to pollen called lupulin which will leave a long lasting yellow stain to clothing. Also, our fresh hops come straight from the fields are although we check they will often have naturally present aphids and insects within the garland. For your safety and enjoyment of our garlands we recommend you follow these simple instructions.

  1. Always wear gloves and long sleeves when handling the plant

  2. Avoid holding the hop garland directly in front of your face

  3. Ensure that essential clothing does not come in contact with the flowers, e.g. wedding dress.

  4. Use protective sheets to protect carpets and other nearby fabrics.

  5. On day of arrival unpack fresh hops and allow drying naturally and preferably in the planned position.

  6. Avoid positioning dry hops immediately. The garlands should be carefully taken out of the box, placed on a sheet and then allowed to absorb moisture naturally for 24 hours. This will ensure the hop garland is more pliable thus easier to handle.

  7. The hop garlands have string running next to the bine which allows for draping over hooks or securing in place.

  8. Take necessary precautions when positioning the hops at height.

  9. Our hop garlands are natural so be prepared to carefully trim any access plant where required.

  10. Hops are toxic to dogs we would advise that they are kept out of the way when handling and hanging hops.

  11. If you have any questions or require further guidance please do not hesitate to contact us.
