The perfect romantic or gardening gift
All you need to add is a suitable tree!
Our popular kits have been developed by mistletoe expert Jonathan Briggs, and are an improved version of the original mistletoe kits he designed for Tenbury Mistletoe Enterprise from 2006-2009. Each kit contains 50-60 freshly-picked berries, carefully cut and packed to reduce damage. This is enough for about 10 plantings. The pack contains detailed full-colour 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.

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!
Our Grow-Kits cannot be sent outside the European Union. Pricing includes UK delivery - please contact us for delivery prices within the EU. 2021 update: Since the UK left the EU all overseas (includng N Ireland) orders need additional paperwork and may not be practical. We are reviewing this situation for the 2021 season.
