I have a young weeping mulberry tree that is spreading its branches out along the ground. It is not growing upright. A couple of the branches have reached a little more than 2 feet in length. How do I train this to grow upright/vertical also?

Thank you,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question as we are transitioning to a new Q&A system. I hope this reply is not too late to be of help.

Weeping mulberry is usually trained to an upright post and then the top is allowed to weep over. Sometimes it is just left to sprawl on the ground. Another common technique is to graft a weeping type onto an upright type mulberry about 5 feet off of the ground.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
