How do you grow mulberries, as a tree or pruned as a shrub?
I've read of both methods, and it sounds like constantly pruning the mulberry back every few years would result in a multi-stemmed shrub that would be much easier to harvest from than a 25+ ft tree.
I'm curious if anyone here has done this, and how it worked out? What kind of yields could I expect with an established 7-8 ft mulberry bush? I'm looking at Illinois Everbearing, but since these are grafted I'm wondering if this method would work? Could I just plant the tree deeper, or at an angle so that it's partially on it's side to ensure the graft union is below soil level to ensure all new shoots were from the hybrid and not the rootstock?
