Pollarding and propagating mulberries
Remember how I wrote
about my plans to pollard
I kept putting it off because I was scared, but eventually I talked
myself into lopping the top off the current tree.
If I'd figured out my
pruning plan a year ago, I could have shaped the tree then and not lost
so much growth, but it's not really a loss. I ended up with a big
handful of hardwood cuttings to experiment with.
I let the rest of my
cuttings suck up willow
overnight, then tossed half into a pot and half directly into a nursery
bed. Hopefully I'll learn which propagation method works best and
will soon have lots of everbearing mulberries to play with in my
Our chicken waterer rounds out good pasture with clean water.
