The 'Grow Your Own Beer' Project
March-September 2018

If you'd like to grow a hop plant this spring and summer, when you harvest the flowers in September, our friends at Mondo Brewery will make it into a delicious brew of ale. You'll then have some drinkable dividends on your initial investment around October time.

After the harvest you'll bring your hops to the Garden to spend the day plucking them from the plants in readiness for the Mondo team to take them away to be infused.

We will also be using some ingredients gathered from Chelsea Physic Garden too - to flavour the ale and make it a truly unique drink.

Entry price of £28 includes:

  • One Hop Rhizome - a dwarf variety called 'Prima Donna' ideal for an urban garden or medium to large container
  • Coir string to encourage and allow your plant to climb up
  • A screw peg to anchor the string to the ground
  • Free entry for one person to our Beverages, Bubbles Brews Bash on Sunday 17th June 2018
  • 4 bottles of the finished ale (330ml/bottle)

Should you wish to buy extra hop rhizomes, this is possible - up to a maximum of 4 extras please (at £9 per rhizome). Hops are perennial plants, so you will have a long term investment too.

A guide to growing hops can be viewed here (on the website of Essentially Hops who are supplying the plants for this project)
