Our only native mistletoe is Viscum album, the generic name referring to the extreme stickiness of the seeds. Matt Moser assured me that it grows on Foxhill Farm where he apparently sowed seeds some years ago. Yesterday I went in search but Matt hadn't told be what species of tree it was growing on. Apples and Lime trees are common hosts but, although other trees sometimes bear this semi-parasite they are far less often encountered. Of course mistletoe from oak trees was traditionally associated with Druidic rituals but oaks bearing mistletoe are remarkably rare.
To cut a long story short my search was fruitless. I searched three separate areas of woodland without success and had to be content with other items of interest.
I recently looked at the subject of hedge laying but failed to mention holly.
Holly forms an impenetrable hedge. Foxhill Farm, Badby.
