Dear Victoriana, Just to let you know that I have received my tree (yesterday) It was left outside on my patio. I did not hear the courier ring the bell, so you will have no signature. My sister in Wales received hers a few days earlier. When I unwrapped it I thought you had decorated it for me, with all the shredded pieces of paper! What a good idea. We are both very pleased with the quality and packaging. Also the large buds already on them. We will both definitely shop with you again. Thank you so much. Kind regards,
June Chadwick, Seaton, Devon
The Mulberry tree - or mulberry bush, depending on how you allow it to grow - is a beautiful ornamental plant in its own right, but its crowning glory is its mulberries! We have both white and black mulberry trees for sale, grown and supplied direct from our family-run nursery in Kent.
Supplied as pot grown trees, after three or four years these highly decorative specimens will produce their delicate and sublimely sweet (black) or slightly sharper (white) fruits in mid-summer. The mulberry bush / mulberry tree is self fertile and so will still produce fruits if grown as a standalone plant in a pot.
Purplish-black, sweet and juicy fruits mid Summer. A real treat that is never seen in supermarkets. A highly ornamental tree in its own right. Self Fertile.
Supplied as a bushy pot grown tree approximately 3 feet (90 cm) tall including pot.
The favourite food source for silk moths. Purplish-black, fruits are sweet and juicy with a slightly sharp finish. Self Fertile.
Supplied as a bare root tree approximately 3 - 4 feet (90 - 120 cm) tall including roots.
