Viscum album - 2015


By Andrewr

Viscum album - 2015 (Viscum album)

My mistletoe is up and running. I applied some ripe berries to an apple tree almost five years ago and the first pair of leaves appeared last year.

Siris - it's about par for the course with mistletoe

Linda - spoilsport!

Your photo prompted me to walk along our road to look at a large tree on the verge with hugh mistletoe clumps on it. It has berries already. Think the tree is an Ash.

It is slow to get going, I think ours must be 5 or 6 years old too.

This is the first time I've ever read of somebody planting a parasitic plant..propagating. It would be nice to mix with other epiphytes. Nice idea Andrew.

HB - I must have put about ten berries on this tree, but only one of them 'took'

So jealous Andrew, when I lived in Shepperton I had a huge clump on our apple tree, obviously left it behind on moving to Cornwall. Have tried to get it going but never had any luck. Well done you.
