Grow-Your-Own Mistletoe Kit
Our kits have been developed by mistletoe expert Jonathan Briggs, and are an improved version of the popular kits he designed for Tenbury Mistletoe from 2006-2009. Each kit contains 50 freshly-picked berries, enough for about 10 plantings, with detailed instructions, labelling material and a recording form to keep track of each planting. Kits cost £15.25 (including UK shipping – for EU shipping see below).
An ideal romantic gift for gardeners, particularly as planting season coincides with Valentine’s Day.
Coupon code ems10discount gives 10% reduction on order values (any mixture of products) £50.00 or over.
Despatch periods – and the Grow-Kit Gift Card option
The mistletoe planting season is February to April, and so our kits, with freshly picked ripe berries, are not sent out until February/March. To order please choose a despatch period* from the list above – the Add-to-Cart button won’t appear until you’ve selected a period. You can order any time from autumn onwards. (Update 30th March 2017: Sorry, we are not taking any more Grow-Kit orders for this season! Ordering for next season will open in October. You can still order Gift Cards, Books or Postcards throughout the year.)
*Despatch periods for the 2016/17 season are:
1st-14th February 2017, 15th -28th February 2017, 1st-14th March 2017, 15th-31st March 2017 or Anytime in Feb/March 2017
If you want to give a Grow-Kit as a gift why not buy one of our Grow-Kit Gift Cards? These can be despatched any time, and are ideal for Christmas or Valentine’s gifts. The lucky recipient just has to return the voucher section to us (post-free) to get their kit delivered in spring. Full details of our Gift Card options are given on the Grow-Kit Gift Cards page.
What else will you need?
A tree to grow it on, as it is a hemi-parasite of tree branches and can’t grow on its own. Apple trees are mistletoe’s favourite host, but lots of other garden tree species are also suitable (there’s a list in the kit)
One last thing – you’ll need some patience, as mistletoe grows very slowly in the first 3 or 4 years. It’s well worth the wait, as once it gets established it grows quite fast, giving you plenty of kissing opportunities every Christmas!
We take pre-orders from autumn onwards – so you don’t have to wait until February before ordering. Indeed you are more likely to be able to pick a despatch period that suits you if you order early!
Please note that the seeds should be planted within 2 weeks of receipt – so do pick a period when you’ll be able to plant them.
Our grow-kit boxes are letter-box friendly – and will fit through most modern letter boxes.
