A correspondent of Gardening Illustrated, says: " At this season of the year, when so many possess Mistletoe berries, it may interest some to know how to obtain plants from these berries. Select two or three of the finest of them, and when the wood of any apple tree, on which it may be desired Mistletoe should grow, is quite dry, take one of the berries between the finger and thumb, and rub it gently on the part of the tree where the Mistletoe is wanted to grow. When the berry breaks, the gummy juice inside causes the seeds to adhere to the bark. In a short time two small prongs will be emitted from the centre of the berry, and these will turn round and root and grow on the branch to which the berry is attached'. This is a simple way of propagating the Mistletoe which any one may try with success".
