Planting and care
Plant mulberries in spring as the soil warm up. Tolerant of a range of soils, mulberries can be grown against walls if space is limited. You can also propagate mulberry trees from cuttings. Mulching also resists heat in summer, so a top layer of mulch is a good idea for a mulberry tree growing in a warm climate. Plant the cuttings/saplings at a spacing of 75 / 105 cm x 90 cm.
Sunlight: Full sun
Soil: Moist, loamy soil
Water: Keep the soil moist
Temperature: 20 to 28 degrees C
Fertilizer: In late winter, apply a general purpose fertilizer. In spring, apply a mulch of organic matter such as well-rotted manure.
