Q.Dying Fruitless Mulberry

Zone 7 | kimeez added on May 29, 2013 | Answered

Last spring we noticed our 15 year old fruitless mulberry was slow to leaf out and looking sickly. spoke with someone that told us we may have injured it with weed killer and that to flush with lots of water as these trees are pretty hardy. This spring it blossomed late and now leaves are doing the same thing as last year. I don’t know if it will eventually die or do we wait it out. Seems as though the tree is putting up a fight. Help!

Sounds like your tree is stressed. Has it been getting the equivalent or rain to 1'' a week? Have you been fertilizing, with what, according to package directions? Have you seen or seen signs of insects? If it's been adequately watered and fed with no insects, all you can do is wait it out. Your tree blooming is a sign that it's trying to survive. Just do all you can to help it. Is it in a container or planted in the ground? If containered, consider getting it into the ground...
