Planting

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

Mulberries need deep, moisture-retentive, but well-drained soil in a situation where the tree will have up to 10 m. dia. of space in which to grow. Plant the tree in Spring, as the soil warms.

 

Propagating by cuttings

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Mulberries can be propagated by hardwood cuttings. Cut well-ripened young shoots 30-60cm long (1-2ft). Dip the cut end in hormone rooting powder before inserting it 15-20cm (6"-8") deep into soil in a cold frame. The following Autumn plant the young plants out.
