Planting and Care Tips ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒž

Where to Plant Your "World's Best" Mulberry Tree

Choosing the right location for your mulberry tree is crucial for its growth and productivity. Here are some planting tips:

  • Full Sun: Mulberries thrive in full sun, so select a spot in your garden that receives at least 6-8 hours of sunlight each day.
  • Well-Draining Soil: Ensure your planting area has well-draining soil. If you have heavy clay soil, consider amending it with organic matter like compost to improve drainage.

How to Plant Your "World's Best" Mulberry Tree

Proper planting ensures a strong start for your tree. Here's how to do it right:

  1. Dig the Hole: Dig a hole that is as deep as the pot your tree comes in and twice as wide. This provides ample space for the roots to spread out.
  2. Position the Tree: Gently remove the tree from its pot, ensuring the roots are intact. Place the tree in the center of the hole.
  3. Backfill with Soil: Fill the hole with soil, ensuring the top of the root ball aligns with the ground surface. Tamp down the soil as you go to eliminate air pockets.
  4. Water Thoroughly: After planting, water the tree thoroughly. This helps settle the soil and ensures good root-to-soil contact.

Caring for Your "World's Best" Mulberry Tree

Proper care ensures your mulberry tree thrives and produces an abundant harvest:

  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the growing season. Mulberries prefer regular watering but can tolerate short periods of drought once established.
  • Pruning: Prune your tree in late winter or early spring to maintain its shape and encourage healthy fruit production. Remove dead or diseased branches as needed.
  • Mulching: Apply a 3-4 inch layer of mulch around the base of the tree, but be cautious not to let it touch the trunk. Mulch helps retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Fertilization: Apply balanced, organic fertilizer in the spring to provide essential nutrients for growth.

When to Harvest Your "World's Best" Mulberries ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ“†

The ideal time to harvest your "World's Best" Mulberries can vary depending on your location, especially in Florida and other regions with distinct climates. Here's a general guideline:

  • Florida: In Florida's subtropical climate, mulberries are typically ready for harvest from late spring to early summer, usually from May to June. Keep an eye on the color of the berries; when they turn deep black and are easy to pick, they're ripe and ready for your enjoyment.
  • Other Regions: In zones 7-10 and similar climates, you can expect mulberries to ripen around the same time as in Florida. However, always pay attention to local weather conditions, as late freezes can affect the harvest. Be prepared to protect your tree if necessary.

It’s common for plants to experience leaf drop during this period. Rest assured, most plants typically recover quickly and thrive with minimal aftercare. However, some may need extra attention, love, and care, requiring appropriate watering and exposure to gentle light post-unboxing.

3. Long-Distance Shipping Considerations: Orders shipped over long distances, particularly to the western US, may take 3 - 5 business days to arrive due to various factors, including agricultural inspections in Arizona, California, and Texas.
