Mulberry - Hicks Fancy

Hicks Fancy do NOT grow in places where you get frosts in October. All the buds go black an fall off. Then the tree dies. English Mulberry does not. | Ed Koetsier - Pyalong , VIC 14-Nov-2010

Mulberry - Hicks Fancy (Grafted) 10/10

MoiraSunriseBeach1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3618 days 6hrs

I put it in for my 5 pet hens and the wild birds. It is amazing and has fruit here on the Sunshine Coast nearly all year and the hens get so excited when I pluck the fruit to feed to them. It has been in now for about 3 years and survived their digging onslaughts. I have some plastic trellis around it to help protect it but they still furiously dig! It is about 2 metres high and wide and I am pruning it to keep it bushy. It has not had any pests and I feed it with Bunnings Garden food a couple of times a year. It is also mulched 3 times a year with sugar cane mulch which the hens dig in and add their own fertilizer to. I live about 1.5 kms from the beach so my soil is sandy but with 3.5 years of sugar cane and hens I have a very good growing medium. My darlings are the best pets ever and phenominal cultivators!
