The Mulberry Bush - Hard to find the fruits in supermarkets, you can have all the joys of growing your own mulberries without the hassle of keeping a large tree. With heights reaching 8 metres, many people don't have the space for a mulberry tree.

This dwarf, compact variety only reaches a height of approximately 1.5m (compared to normal mulberries that can reach up to 8m in height), making it suitable for any garden. It’s self-pollinating, fully hardy and fruits on both old and new wood, meaning you can be picking mulberries within the first year as opposed to the usual 8 or 9 years it takes most other mulberries.

And unlike other varieties that only produce fruit over a 3-week period towards the end of summer, Charlotte Russe (Matsunaga PBR) produces berries over a very long period, from May right through until September!

This self-pollinating variety is fully hardy and fruits on both old and new wood, meaning you can be picking mulberries within the first year as opposed to the usual 8 or 9 years it takes most other mulberry trees. Fruiting over a long period, berries will appear from May until September and have the added bonus of not containing pips. Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers. Attractive to butterflies, bees and birds. Prefers full sun.

(Please note: Decorative pot not included.)

 

How do I grow a Mulberry bush?

This Mulberry is perfect for growing in a pot. Plant into a decent size pot (approximately 20 litres) using multi-purpose compost and ideally mixing in a long term feed or feed regularly during the growing season with a shrub and fruit feed.

Planting

Choose a sunny position and a good fertile ground adding multi-purpose compost or well-rotted farmyard manure. The soil should be moisture retentive and free draining. The plant may still need watering for the first year or so and during periods of dry weather.

This Mulberry is perfect for growing in a pot. Plant into a decent size pot (approximately 20 litres) using multi-purpose compost and ideally mixing in a long term feed such as Vitax Q4 or feed regularly during the growing season with a shrub and fruit feed.

Keep the pot well watered and prevent from drying out during the summer to ensure a healthy plant and even more fruit during the season. Check your pot every spring and if the roots have filled the pot, then plant it into a larger pot. Homemade compost could be added for richness.

In subsequent years Mulberries may still need regular watering and feeding to produce extra fruit. Use Vitax Q4 during Spring and feed during growing season.

Pruning

Only prune dead wood or inwards growing and crossing branches or longer shoots, to keep the plant in a nice rounded mound shape.
