Is now a bad time to prune mulberries to shape? I know they are quick growing and pruning anytime won't hurt them. But mine was very spindly from lots of first year growth. I was just wondering do they flower on new growth or old? Will pruning now affect how much fruit I might get this year?
If you can eat it, GROW IT!!

They only flower on new growth. I got 4 crops when I pruned back hard 4 times a year.

My goal was to cut off the strongest growths to make the plant not grow so fast.
