  • Mistletoe: From tree thief to holiday tradition

    By Jessica Sayre, County extension agent for horticulture

Phoradendron, the scientific name for Kentucky’s most common variety of this parasitic plant, means “tree thief”. These small leafy plants are commonly found on twigs and branches of many hardwood species in the southern United States.

  • Which type of tree reflects your holiday, live or fresh cut?

    It is hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us!
    I have family visiting for Christmas so this means a bigger tree than normal; if you are going to travel to come see us, this is the least I can do. Plus, it is fun to find the “perfect” tree that fits your space and holds precious ornaments with style.
