Media - Potamogeton Press

In 2010 we adopted the name Potamogeton Press for some leaflets and books.

Products so far include various mistletoe-related books and leaflets, including A Little Book About Mistletoe and the Planting Guide included in the English Mistletoe Shop's Grow-Your-Own Mistletoe Kit

Some of this publishing has involved print-on-demand methodologies and we are actively pursuing some other PoD and e-book projects - more news on those soon.

Recently we have begun using the name as branding for a new series of websites - client websites will be re-branded when appropriate. For more on websites click visit our website page.
