  • Pakistani Mulberry cutting propagation year 2

    Ok last year I posted 3 small cuttings we managed to root from a small limb. A few people commented saying they never could get Pakistani Mulberry to root from cuttings, so here we are year 2 and we shall try again. Last years cutting are reported to still be doing good, 2 were gifted or traded on here, and one we keep because it was the smallest of the 3. We will be doing the same thing just scraping the bottoms and sticking them into regular potting mix under a tree to root, no rooting hormone or anything special. We will check on them just to make sure they do not dry out and report back when we have growth.

        I've definitely never had luck with Pakistan either. I have had some success with Oscar and Shangri-La. This year I put are layers on my Pakistan I'm hoping to have at least one with success over the next month or two

                Billy: I have scion dormant, rootstocks in great rich soil in containers that have just leafed out in mild spring weather. I use long whip grafts with topof scion wrapped in parafilm, the cuts on scion and rootstocks swabbed with dipngrow.graft is wrapped tightly with rubber band and then parafilm. Containers are put in partial shade and containers kept fairly moist with miracle grow. I use native red mulberry stocks,not the white mulberry or hybrids. With fresh non dried out scions I get almost 100% here. Rooting cuttings is not as good. Air layers so far 100%. Just cut off and potted 5 Pakistan A/L's important to pinch off any attempts of little fruits to develop as steal nutrients.Good luck

              Are air layers a viable option with mulberries?

              It does look like the Pakistani. It popped up along the fence line last year and I cut it down. Of course it grew back. Yesterday I repotted the Pakistani that one of the members gave away a couple months ago. As I was sitting the pot down the tree along the fence was in the direct line of sight as the potted one and I noticed the leaves looked alike. Of course now I have to try to dig it up and pot it up.

              Good to know you guys saw what I saw.

                    Stela G I will try to remember to post a pic when I get home. The little tree you sent me in the spring is about 7' tall now in a 5 gal pot and root bound. When the weather cools a bit I'm going to get it in the ground.

                        Wow that thing exploded in growth, congrats. Hard to believe that was that little cutting I rooted. Thank you for the update.

                        My persimmon grafts weren't very successful this year but I have you on my list for next spring when hopefully I'll have more luck.

                      ​ Ok here is the update on the cuttings. The hurricane caused me to move them for a couple of weeks, that is the only difference between these and the ones we did at the beginning of the year. As you can see a few didn't make it and we removed them, but goes to show that Pakistan Mulberries will root. No Hormones or anything special just some soil and kept under a tree, most of the time. The other container dried out and all but one died. Click image for larger version

                        I've had good results with Pakistani Black and also a White mulberry with cuttings stuck directly in ground. I sometimes use rooting hormone , but not always and get 70-80 % to root. I use dormant cuttings and keep soil moist ,not wet, during our short winter and they sprout leaves in Feb-March and grow like weeds after that! I've also had good results with air-layers of both varieties. Click image for larger version

                            Nice! Unfortunately the varieties I'm looking for are supposed to be difficult to root. But that said, Southern Highbush blueberries and Japanese maples are difficult also, and I've gotten about 50% rooting with those. You gotta go for it and see what works, as you obviously did. Generous offer, BTW!
