The Dwarf Mulberry Bush – We know it can be tricky to find the fruits in supermarkets, and you can have all the joys of growing your own mulberries without the hassle of keeping a large tree. With heights reaching 8 metres, many people don't have the space for a mulberry tree, and this one was named Plant of the Year at the 2017 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
This dwarf, compact variety only reaches a height of approximately 1.5m (compared to normal mulberries that can reach up to 8m in height), making it suitable for any garden. It’s self-pollinating, fully hardy and fruits on both old and new wood, meaning you can be picking mulberries within the first year as opposed to the usual 8 or 9 years it takes most other mulberries. And unlike other varieties that only produce fruit over a 3-week period towards the end of summer, Charlotte Russe (Matsunaga PBR) produces berries over a very long period, from May right through until September! Please note: These plants will go into dormancy in the autumn and will lose their leaves. Supplied in a 2 litre pot, plant size 15cm.
