How To Grow Mistletoe

Leicestershire, United Kingdom

Hi, I fancy a go at growing some mistletoe. I know basically what to do but wondered if anyone has successfully done this. Was wondering where to obtain the berries, which host tree to use etc. If anyone can offer advice that would be great.



Good evening Dawn. No I am not an expert on mistletoe, never grown it in my life and probably never will. I'll stick to insectivores. LOL.

But I did find this site which may help.

I'm sure I saw someone discussing this recently and I think it was on someone's photograph on GOY. If you shout loud enough they may see it.
