For the last hundred years there has been an annual mistletoe and holly auction at Tenbury Wells in Worcestershire. It’s the largest wholesale market for English mistletoe in the country and attracts buyers from all over the British Isles. This was the last of three auctions.
Orchard Origins will be harvesting mistletoe as part of its mistletoe management programme in the Dormington orchard later this week. We will be selling sprigs of it at Hereford farmers’ market in the run up to Christmas.
