A mulberry tree needs being fertilized sometimes. Fertilizing should take place in early spring and early summer. You should not fertilize the soil under your tree in later periods, since in this case it will grow too much. Young branches will not be able to form to the end before winter time comes and this is why will die. Remember that the berries not only smell and taste well, but also have healing properties. They are recommended for those who have metabolism disorder. When you grow up a mulberry tree in your garden, remember of its magic properties that came to us from legends.
