Has anyone had success growing mulberries in our region? I successfully overwintered two saplings last winter, but they both suffered winterkill to the snowline. I'm trying better protection this year but expect that I'll still suffer significant losses. I dearly love the fruit, but haven't seen any other bushes/trees on the prairies.
I'm currently on vacation in the Bahamas and recently discovered (and enjoyed) a very large bush on a vacant property. This genus must be a near record for the greatest north-south range for a fruiting bush/tree (pic is of the island bush).
