Mistletoe

At Averys Garden Centre our special “Somerset Grown” Mistletoe is hand collected by Sam from local trees.

For centuries our Somerset Mistletoe grown in trees around Taunton has been regarded as a symbol of peace and hospitality.

Sam has to take care how he harvests the Mistletoe for Averys Garden Centre as according to folklore one should only cut it with a solid gold knife, and collect it in a new white cloth. Sam needs to very careful as if any cut Mistletoe falls to the ground it will bring disaster to the whole nation.

According the druids of Glastonbury the magical properties of Mistletoe are strongest when it is found on an oak tree, and most importantly one has to burn it after 12th night incase youngsters who kiss under it do not marry!
