  • OT mulberry cuttings

    I have a weeping mulberry tree that is about ten years old, and produces fruit every year(since it was a 3 ft stick). Does anyone know if I can root cuttings from it, like with a fig tree cutting?
    Hi my name is Art. I buy fig cuttings-so I can grow more figs-so I can sell more figs-so I can buy more fig cuttings-so I can grow more figs....

    Why not set some air layers? I would be happy to buy one or two plants from you a couple months from now.

      Yes, normally the mulberry cuttings root the same way. I did a few this spring and found them even easier than figs because they seem to be less sensitive to the moisture excess.

        According to several youtube videos, mulberries are supposed to be very easy to root from cuttings. Wouldn't mind a few myself to try.

              Ed,

              You pay the postage and for the padded envelope and will send you as many cuttings as you want, they are GOOD. That goes for any of the members here as well. Once they are done fruiting I will prune them HARD. They are easy to root, put them in a pot and 60% + should root.

                Wills, what variety of mulberry do u have?

            • #8
              I've read that some varieties are hard to root, some are easy. Allegedly the contorted types are very easy while Illinois Everbearing is hard.

              WillsC What kind do you have? Some species/types aren't hardy here in the northern lands....but I'd probably give them a shot!
