Hello, i visited your nursery earlier today, i have to tell you: i was seriously impressed, both with the friendly knowledgeable helpful Lady who was there serving me, and with the carload of plants i bought. I love my new cherry and apricot trees, my new blackberry bush and the amazing more than a tray load of olde worlde herbs i bought. I might not be able to visit often due to the 145 mile distance but i will certainly be back sometime. Thank You very Much. :)

A British variety of hop developed at Wye College in 1951.  It was breed to be wilt resistant (a problem that has effected many varieties in the UK) and released for commercial growing in 1964. It is a cross between WGV and OB79 (the Grandfather of Target) and a replacement for Fuggle. Can be suspectible to powdery and downy mildew but has high tolerance to Verticillium Wilt. Progress has had great success being grown in Kent and Sussex.

The hop vines are known as bines and will reach about 25 feet tall, they are traditional grown on strings vertically to about 18 feet but you could also grow them along of fence or similar, it is recommended to grow 2-3 bines each year, but certainly no more than 8, all other growth should be removed. The bines will die back over the Winter (and any growth still there should be removed in late Autumn) and will re-grow from the base of the plant.

The young shoots can be eaten and taste like artichokes or brussel sprouts!

Progress produces a delicious English bitter, stout, Czech Pilsner, Cask ale, pale ale, lighter bitter, wheat beer or porter, it has been used to make Hop Back's Thunderstorm and Wood Brewery's Hopping Mad. This variety of hop has a sweet flavour with subtle bitterness and aromas of grass, floral, mint and earthy.  It sometimes has a lime fruit flavour to it. Hops have antibacterial properties which is why they are again becoming more popular in beer making.

Hop flowers are also used to treat arthritis, fibromyalgia, insomnia, diabetes and menopause symptoms because of their anti-inflammatory and sedative properties. You can use them to make tea and 'herb pillows'.

This variety of hop is also aromatic so good for drying and using as decoration as well as making beer!
