The perfect romantic or gardening gift
All you need to add is a suitable tree!
Our mistletoe 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 £15.50 (including UK shipping)
An ideal romantic gift for gardeners, particularly as planting season coincides with Valentine’s Day.
Timing - and our 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. You can choose a despatch period when ordering (see below).
If you want to give a Grow-Kit as a gift at Christmas 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.
Ordering Grow-Kits £15.50
To order please choose a despatch period from the list below and then click the Order Now button. Update January 2021: We are now at capacity for the February despatch periods so these are now removed from the options.
To order our Gift Cards visit 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 cannot 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).
Please note that the fresh seeds do not keep well and should be planted within 2 weeks of receipt – so please choose 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.
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!
