What can I do for this Mulberry tree?
Welcome to my thread everyone!
It has been a year since I started growing this mulberry tree. Now the buds started to reveal these flowers that look like tentacles from a squid or an octopus...
I want to know if this is a female mulberry or a male? I think it is a female tree? correct me if I am wrong.
If it is a female, what can I do to find another male, and how does its flower look like, and can I graft a male part to the female tree? I want to ask also if another variety of mulberry will be able to pollinate my tree?
I am thinking of purchasing some Pakistani mulberry which has male and female parts to pollinate my (I think it is Persian) mulberry tree, and produce me some Pakistani mulberry at the same time...
Is this possible?
Here is a picture of a leaf. Its leaves look like hearts.
To sum everything up:
1- Is this a female Mulberry tree?
2- How does the other gender look like?
3- Can I graft a male branch on it?
4- Can other varieties of mulberry pollinate it?
5- Is this a Persian mulberry?
Thanks to all that help me in my journey in my little garden.
I hope you all have a great season :)
