Is there a way to preserve fresh mistletoe cut in February when berries are best? I want to use them in arrangements during December.

Hardiness Zone: 8b

Drying Fresh Mistletoe

Please use care, as real Mistletoe is highly poisonous. It severely constricts blood vessels and was used back in the 1700's for women that were dying of hemorrhage after childbirth, but this stuff is downright nasty.

Please think twice before you decide to use it around children or animals. Please do some research if you have your heart set on it using it for decoration. (02/15/2008)
