A closer look at Hops

Every July and August, the hops fields of south-east England and the West Midlands are covered in clusters of creamy-white blooms. Which is why this life-like bunch will give you such a summery, English countryside feel. With arching stems, they’re good for creating a naturalistic bower over a doorway or giving a vase arrangement a looser, wilder look.

Why life-like?

Having foliage and flowers in your home makes such a difference – they’re one of those final touches that helps it feel more lived in. And stems that look as good on Friday as they did on Monday are even better – no water to change, nothing to trim, no dead-heading, no mess, no fuss. And no wilting.

From real-life to life-like

There are two stems in this bunch which flop realistically, each with lots of cone-like flowers surrounded by leaves, giving you plenty of body too. The blooms on one stem are whiter, and on the other stem, greener and hand-painted with pink edges, so you get natural variation too. With a wire inside the stalks and leaves, you can even shape them individually.

Materials

Sometimes natural materials are best, other times synthetic. For our life-like stems, it’s polyester that creates the most realistic look. Easy to dye, it’s vibrant and colourfast so your stem won’t fade. And it can be made matte or shiny to look exactly like the real thing.

Just so you know

The wire in the stem is tough so you can’t accidentally snap it. But you’ll need something powerful if you want to trim it down. We’ve found long-handled loppers (the ones for pruning shrubs and trees) or wire cutters do the trick.

The wire inside also means you can’t put your stem in water for long or it’ll rust. So if you’re arranging it with real flowers, bend the life-like stem up out of the water.

When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.

With smaller designs we tend to use one of three couriers; the three that we think are the best. It means that we can get your order out to you sooner. You’ll receive an email from our delivery partner to confirm your delivery date within 24 hours of us dispatching the item (or items).
