Mulberry Cuttings

Posted by ig_wend 5 PA (My Page) on

Hi everyone! We are selling our house. There are four mulberry trees (they give wonderful black berries in the summer) that grow in our backyard (my son received a young tree that his friend gave him 10 years ago and since then 3 more have grown). There are no small trees that I can dig up and replant in our new home. I was thinking of growing mulberry trees from cuttings but I am not sure if this is possible. Does anyone have experience or suggestions with mulberry cuttings? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Have had best luck with hardwood cuttings taken in winter.... apply 0.8% IBA (Rooting hormone) takes 75-100 days to root.
very easy from seed

RE: Mulberry Cuttings

georgez5il, thank you very much for your response! I imagine the seeds are in the berries (which are quite delicious). Is there a best way using seeds? Should I just take some of the berries and plant them where I want them to grow or is there more to it? Thank you once again!
