Care Paper mulberry
As they grow, these plants become the size of a tree. The development is erect, they tend to grow both in height and in width, giving origin to a rounded shrub. This plant in the summer assumes a greenpurple colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 8 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.

Temperatures Paper mulberrySole pieno
Let's grow the The Paper mulberry in a luminous place, with direct sunlight. These plants don't like the cold weather during this time of year. If the minimum night-time temperatures are very harsh it is best to cover the The Paper mulberry with non-woven fabric.If a tree with a very thin trunk is put in shelter, it could be useful to secure it to a solid stake, which can keep it erect, and protect it from the damage caused by strong winds.

Irrigation Paper mulberryTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the The Paper mulberry every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. We should pay particular attention to those plants which have been recently placed in shelter; during the years, trees develop a cospicuous radical apparatus, and need watering only if the climate is particularly dry.

Adversity Paper mulberry
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there aren’t flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Substrate Paper mulberry
These trees need a dissolved soil with an optimum drainage.
