Plants for Fall 2019 Shipping

Your order placed now will be collected, carefully packaged and shipped as bare root plants as soon as we enter dormancy this fall. This normally begins mid to late October and into early November. We’ll email you shipping confirmation and tracking details as soon as they ship! Since our nursery is outdoors and based on nature our timing is dependent on the weather.

TIP: Use the tags above to help filter our offerings by characteristic (ie. click on ‘fruit’ to find any fruit bearing plants we offer, etc.) As we add more and more it is a helpful way to find a plant to fit your goals…

Morus Alba - Tatarica
We grow a Mulberry type also known as White Mulberry or Russian Mulberry.
Mulberry is very adaptable, but really enjoys a rich ‘bottomland’ type soil and a large amount of light. Widely documented as tolerant to Black Walnut influence (we are planning to install many trees in association with Black Walnut to truly test for ourselves, but many folks report Morus Alba to be completely tolerant). Please know that Mulberry may be male or female (dioecious) and a single tree may quite well turn out to be male and not bear fruit. Planting a few will give a much better chance for good fruit set…
Some potential uses for Mulberry in the permaculture landscape:
- Fresh fruit! (quite obvious!)
- Ample fruit/nutrition for chickens and other animals (drops ripe fruits over long period, provides deep shade in mid-summer, excellent cover tree for chickens)
- Firewood! (Morus family has some of the highest BTU of any wood, and it grows insanely fast)
- Chop and drop (huge glossy leaves and very fast growing branches are filled with nutrient and life to stimulate the soil)
- Erosion control/silt catch (tolerant of periodic moist conditions and always up for a rich meal of fresh soil, Mulberry can be part of a ‘wall’ to collect nutrient and stop periodic running water from ripping out soils)
- Rootstock - (This variety makes a very cold hardy and strong rootstock for ‘fancy’ mulberry types like Illinois Everbearing, etc… You could plant these seedlings, see what you think of the fruit, and graft some over to nicer known types down the road.)
- Lots more!

Ready to learn more about this plant than you ever thought you’d want to?…

We’ve got a few options of plant stock to meet your budget and goals… They are organized by size at time of digging from nursery. They grow VERY quickly so whatever you go with should establish well for you.

Site Preference:
Enjoys full sun and deep rich soil, but seems tolerant to a much wider range of conditions. Very adaptable and ready to grow!

Can get 50’ or so tall, and will be a broad, spreading tree form. Can also be coppiced/pollarded into shrub or sub-tree form.
