Learn how to plant

Having chosen you trees that you wish to use as hosts to your new mistletoe plants, you now have to select where in the tree you are going to plant your seeds. We recommend that each planting site can accommodate 4 – 5 seeds spaced about 20 cm apart.   


When deciding on where to plant think about the following:


Having chosen your site (and we would suggest that you chose at least two trees) you need to extract the seed from its casing.

1. First remove any the plant that might be attached to the seed and acting as plug for the casing.


2. Gently squeeze the seed between thumb, index and forefinger. This should cause the seed to emerge surrounded by a sticky clear substance.


Step 2:

3. Wipe the seed on to the planting site on the host, the sticky substance will insure that it sticks to the host’s bark.


Think about where you are going to place your seed. Remember its roots eventually have penetrate through the bark into the tree itself. Think about natural crevasses in bark that might provide an easier point of entry and that might also provide some natural shelter and protection.


It is then a matter of time!
