Ever wanted to have a fruit tree in your garden. What about a tree that bears berries so special they are often not found in your local store but a culinary delight? If you can imagine going out into your garden first thing in the morning to pick a few berries to add to your breakfast, making jam for spreading on piping hot toast or sipping on mulberry infused wine or gin, this is the tree for you.
The ‘Morus nigra’ also known as the Mulberry Tree, while not only gorgeous to the eye, features a unique knitted pattern of intertwined branches. The branches are decorated by large green heart-shaped leaves in spring, fading to a glorious golden hue in autumn. Once the leaves begin to change, the sweet-smelling luscious berries appear in shades of pinks and purple which you, and your local garden birds, will not get enough of.
For best results, plant your Mulberry Tree in moist soil and in full sun. It is fully hardy and can tolerate a range of varying conditions. This tree is also disease resistant which makes growing it very easy with minimum care needed. This popular fruit tree will reach heights of 8m and a spread of 4m in a 20 year period. It is ideal for a medium to large sized garden.
Get your children in touch with nature! Silkworms feed on Mulberry leaves and keeping them make a fascinating experience as they watch the worms spinning glorious golden silk cocoons.
