New Potted Mulberry Breaking Dormancy
I bought a small Shangri La mulberry from Edible Landscaping last month. It's still in the quart pot in which it arrived -- I'd planned to move it to a larger pot in early spring. In the meantime, I've been keeping it outside except on nights when temps dip below 30 or so. Apparently, though, I've inadvertently woken it up, because the leaf buds are breaking open and greening up. Is there any chance that I can slow or stop the process by moving it under my house, where it's very dark and the temp stays in the 40s and 50s?
