It’s nearly that time again, mistletoe season.
Berries are looking good, at least on the plants I’ve been examining, and, for those who want the usual sales info, there are two wholesale auctions at Tenbury Wells this season. On the 22nd and 29th November. Details of those here. The Tenbury Mistletoe Festival is also taking place.
My activities this season will focus on management and propagation. Including continuing supplying mistletoe grow kits through the English Mistletoe Shop websites here and here.
The Mistletoe Pages website is being revised at present – more on that soon.
And there will be, if all goes to plan, a new paper on mistletoe biology in the Journal of Ecology by Christmas. This is a co-authored paper in the Biological Flora of the British Isles series. It deals with detailed biology and is a technical cousin of my more general paper in the journal British & Irish Botany last December.
