Our fruitless mulberry doesn't grow as well as our neighbors at our place in the country. We need to know the feeding and watering practices, also the best time to plant.

Morus, or Fruitless Mulberry, are deciduous trees that thrive in full sunshine and very little water once established. They make excellent shade trees and have very few pests and diseases. If your tree isn't performing well, you may want to prune it back a bit to encourage new growth. Do this in the early spring so the tree has all season to develop new branches. Mulberry trees are not too demanding; they appreciate regular watering while they're becoming established, but grow equally well in alkaline and acidic soils, whether well or poorly draining. Plant new trees in the autumn or spring months to lessen transplant shock.
