1 Mulberry Tree (T14235)
Fruit and nut trees do not suffer weed competition well, so keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the tree. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Mulberries can be slow to break bud in the spring so frost damage to flowers rarely occurs. Water mulberry trees well during particularly dry periods.
Mulberries should be allowed to develop naturally, removing only the occasional misplaced or damaged stem. Unwanted laterals on the main stem can be shortened in the first year and removed in the second year to leave a clear stem. Prune mulberries only while dormant in winter to prevent excessive bleeding of sap.
