How to grow your own mistletoe

Although mistletoe is spread naturally by birds, it is possible to grow it yourself. Of course, you could always crochet your own as part of our Robin Doorstop amigurumi crochet pattern

  1. Harvest berries from a tree in March or April. Make sure you choose a tree that is similar to the type of tree in your own garden that you wish to establish the mistletoe on.
  2. Discard any crushed berries and do not use berries from sprigs used as Christmas decorations. These will not germinate as they are generally harvested when immature.
  3. Choose a branch 10cm (4in) or more in girth on a tree that is 15-years-old or more. Ideally this should be fairly high up, so the developing plant receives plenty of light.
  4. Find a natural crevice in the bark or make a shallow cut to create a small flap.
  5. Remove the seeds from the fleshy berries and insert them into the crevice or under the flap.
  6. Finish by covering with hessian to protect the seeds from birds.
  7. To ensure greater success, sow quite a few seeds at each site as only one in ten seeds germinate, and both male and female plants are needed for berries to form.

The branch will swell as the mistletoe develops, but don’t expect quick results; plants can take five years or more to reach berrying size.
