Morus plantation is not leafing out

Zone Central Italy | Patricia1935 added on May 28, 2015 | Answered

Planted this tree in September in central Italy. Has buds which are green inside but at end of May no leaves. Other tree of same kind nearby is in leaf. It was watered in winter when no rain but maybe not enough. Can we do anything to stimulate it to leaf out? We have a Mediterranean climate but it is a bit cooler than usual this year, temperatures about 24 C daytime and 15 or a bit less occasionally at night. Very grateful for any help. Patricia Dugdale

A newly planted tree does need adequate water in order to become rooted and established.
If it is showing signs of life, continue caring for the tree.
Make sure it is receiving adequate water and hope for the best.
