Planting #mistletoe #seeds on our #heritageorchard #appletrees one of the first jobs of the #newyear #gardener #gardendesign
Must go and look at ours
Do you literally just put the seeds in an opening in the bark? 🤔
We have a pretty little native Mistletoebird (Dicaeum Hirundinaceum) that feeds on the mistletoe berries then poops them on to the branch of a tree to grow. 🙃 @rachelbrooks
@rachelbrooks Hi Rachel, thats pretty much it yes, sometimes you can make a slight slit in the bark and put the seed in if you want. Best Wishes Darren
Yes, that’s how they normally grow here too Annette. I didn’t even think whether we could propagate it! How clever! @Annettenoosa Thanks Darren, I may give it a go! 👍🏼
I thought mistletoe was a tree parasite -- not so?
So did I. @sushiwaitress
