    Hi Lisa, Have just looked at the link and it seems I am not alone. It does look as if I will not be able to grow cuttings from mine as it is a Nigra . Oh well shall keep trying anyway and thank you once again . Regards Mama. x

    Hi Top Veg, No I haven't and it's too late now we have eaten them all .Perhaps next year I shall try that. They do seem to be difficult but have read were people just stick them in the ground and they root!! Not for me they don't. Regards Mama.

  7. Eating them sounds great. I planted a mulberry about 3 years ago - it looks very well but no fruit on it yet...do you know how long it takes?

    Hi, I planted mine 3yrs ago but it was about about 2 and half mtrs high when I bought it bare rooted.It is now 6 mtrs .I have had fruit from it every year but this year more so. It was supposed to be a low fruiting one as it near a terrace. shudder to think how much fruit you would get on one that isn't. Regards Mama .

    Young growth on Nigra can be container layered in a well draining medium aided with clonex 'red' on the stems. If there is any way that the soil temp can be kept above about 72F then approx. 20pc will strike. It is absolutely imperative to devise a method of potting on from layering with minimum root disturbance... v. sensitive and fragile. Hope this helps.

    I have several Mulberry trees, and have more coming up every year in places I don't want. They are coming up from seeds that I think the birds are helping to plant. So seeds should be the way to go.
