You will need to plant up approximately twenty seeds to grow a selection of male and female plants. Select a branch on the host tree which exceeds 10cm girth. Either plant the seeds direct into a crook on the branch or cut shallow flap and insert the seeds under the bark and secure with hessian and string.
Keep watered and protect from birds by hanging old CDS. The seeds will germinate quickly to produce a shoot which will make contact with host plant. When this shoot has made contact with the hosts vascular system a new plant will appear in early spring.
Plants can take up to five years to produce berries if male and female plants are present. You can attach more seeds to the mistletoe plant if required.
