Grafting Mulberry?
« on: October 24, 2018, 01:12:04 PM »
I think i discovered a wild mulberry sapling on my property. About 2.5 feet tall and pencil-thick.

I know a bit about grafting but nothing specifically about mulberry.

Anyone have experience with this tree? What season should grafting be done, and are there any other "tricks?"

Of course, I would have to find a source for scions. If anyone has any or knows of a source, let me know.

Well, a quick google seems to answer most of my questions.

I have a himilayan mulberry I need to prune.  Can send you some if you cover postage. 

Might be better to wait until spring though.

Thanks! Is that variety hardy in 7a (I assume so)?
Also is it self fertile?
Sorry, I donít know much about Morus

I will try to remember in the spring to reach out.
