The Q&A Archives: Planting Under Mulberry Trees

Question: What can I plant below or surrounding a fruit-bearing mulberry tree that produces lots of fruit in summer?

Answer: Mulberry trees drop considerable amounts of fruit and leaves, so any groundcover you choose should be low-growing enough to allow you to rake the debris up at the end of the season. You can grow Soleirolia (Baby's Tears), Ajuga (Carpet Bugle), Asarum caudatum (Wild Ginger), or Creeping Buttercup in the shady area beneath your Mulberry tree.
