EMS GYO Mistletoe Kit BoxThere’s advice on how to grow your own mistletoe on the previous page – but if you need more help, and/or can’t get a supply of fresh berries at the right time of year (February to April) you might be interested in a Grow Your Own Mistletoe Kit.

Jonathan Briggs developed a GYO Kit for Tenbury English Mistletoe Enterprise in 2006, and his improved version of that is now available from the English Mistletoe Shop. Kits are available from the main English Mistletoe Shop website or from the specific Grow-Kit site here.

EMS GYO Kit open boxThe kits contain 50 freshly-picked berries, enough for about 10 plantings, with detailed instructions, labelling material and a recording form to keep track of each plant.

They are only delivered in February and March – but can be ordered at any time and are particularly popular at Christmas.

The English Mistletoe Shop also sells GYO Kit Gift Cards so that the kits can be given as gifts at Christmas, albeit with delivery of the actual kit later in the spring.
