Our Feedback
Reading your website, I entirely agree with this quote you feature:"It is no mistake that when you buy their plants they arrive packed so carefully that even if they have travelled hundreds of miles, they're still perfect on arrival." I unpacked this order, after collecting it from the pier where our freight is delivered by ferry. The layers of plants amazed me, so carefully laid so closely together, and still damp in heavy duty waterproof bag. Instructed by the absent gardener I gave them another drink, and placed the plants upright in their packaging, in the greenhouse, to await his return, checked next morning that they had not been eaten, and were still damp. Look forward to future use!

Bush or a tree? The reality is mulberries are medium sized trees that naturally grow in a bush form.

Forgetting the fruit for a moment, this really is beautiful ornamental tree - in the Spring and Summer the foliage positively glows, whilst in the Autumn and Winter the stark gnarled framework of branches looks simply stunning.

Mulberries have never really 'made it' commercially as a fruit because they are simply too delicate to travel when ripe and can't really be picked until they are; at least this is one fruit they can't muck up the true flavour of!

Mid Summer the fruits mature to purplish red colour, when they should be picked and eaten soon after - be delicate with them as they crumble easily. Their flavour is truly sublime, and packed with lots of sweet juice.

  • Self Fertile.
  • Fruiting should commence 2 - 3 years from planting.
  • Please note that the foliage on young Mulberry trees is often deeply lobed and does not resemble that of mature trees.
