My White mulberry is starting to get leaves and hopefully will fruit this year, my Blackberry is in AP and is starting to grow again, also have a Raspberry to the collection now but doubt it will fruit this year

My black Mulberry cutting that I struck in autum is only 5cm tall and has one fruit growing, I should probably cut it off to encourage more growth.

My white mulberry is starting to take off, lots of leaves and fruit coming, looks like being another bumper year. I love the white mulberries, so much nicer than black, and they don;t stain.

Our plain old black mulberry (3 foot tall, planted last year) seemed to be really behind this year, may have been to dry for it. Two weeks ago all the others around here had fruit that was only a few weeks off eating and ours had not even gone into bud properly. I started to worry about it and thought I would give it a help in hand so I sat a 20 litre brewing drum at the base of it, put about 2kg of dynamic lifter in the drum (I call it my stink feeder), filled it with water and cracked the tap open so it took an hour to empty. I kid you not, the buds swelled and started openeing the next day, within two days it had leaves - amazing. I have been refilling the drum with water every few days since and it now is full of leaves and little green mulberries. Meanwhile I am eating everyone elses that are now ready :thumb:

No need for special treatment to get mulberries to strike, I pruned mine and threw on top of the mulch and I reckon every stick grew.
I also have some a year old in very small pots and they are fruiting like crazy... about the hardiest fruit tree I know of.
***must get white mulberry !***
