They are fast-growing so this process won't take long. Mine went from un-mowed spot to fruiting in just 2 years.
I don't personally think mulberry trees require pruning since they're so short (maybe 20 ft tall max), but if you want to prune them anyway, they are very receptive to it. Mine easily takes the shapes that I try to cut it into.
LOL I have a mulberry tree that grew in a pot. It's now 3 years old and about 8 feet tall. I'd love to find a home for it. I have pulled a few others and even more are growing in pots. The birds must be doing the seeding.
I don't know which one it is, white or red and no berries yet. How can you tell? It took me forever just to find out it was a mulberry.
I have a bunch of other types of trees growing in pots too. (The birds?)None have grown as quickly as this one.
