This year I am attempting to grow my own mistletoe, on our apple trees, and that encouraged me to have a closer look at this curious plant. You’ll hear about the ancient myths, the Mistle Thrush, the case for mistletoe in cancer treatment, and of course, how to grow your own. I've found a surprising quantity of mistletoe themed music, and we'll finish off with a nicely scary story.
