Cultivation 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.

Light Paper mulberrySole pieno
The Paper mulberry should be preferably located in a place where it can have at least a few hours a day of direct solar light. These plants are rustic in the areas with a Mediterranean climate, therefore they can be grown outside.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.

Water Paper mulberryTenere asciutto
Let's water abundantly, moistening the soil deeply with 1-2 buckets of water , but let's act only when the substratum is dry, leaving it dry even for 4-5 weeks before watering it. 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.

Pests 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.

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