Environmental needs for growing Mulberry

the heat:

The ideal temperature for planting and growing berries ranges from 30 to 32 degrees Celsius, as the leachate begins to flow when the soil temperature ranges between 6-8 degrees Celsius, then trees begin to grow when the soil temperature reaches 12 degrees Celsius, as the lack of moisture The weather and the ground with a rise in temperature lead to the drying of the leaves, but mulberry trees can withstand higher than low temperatures, and frosts kill the developing seeds, buds, and leaves, and works to delay the opening of the buds.

Humidity:

Mulberry trees do not prefer excessive moisture, and do not prefer drought and low air humidity, because this contributes to curling the leaves, in contrast to moderate irrigation that preserves and strengthens the trees.

Light factor: where the shade reduces the production of food in the leaf, which is necessary for the creation of fruits, as the mulberry tree is a light-loving tree.

Air:

Air works to pollinate the mulberry blossoms to produce the fruits that helps the mulberry blossoms to pollinate, in order to bear fruit, knowing that the berries need clean air and not polluted

the soil:

Mulberries do not tolerate the abundance of ground water as well as severe drought, so it is best to water the trees regularly and repeatedly at the beginning of growth, and clay breeding is not suitable because it is poorly ventilated, so it is not suitable for growing berries.

How to grow berries at home

And before knowing how to grow berries at home, and before thinking about planting berries, especially white ones at home, you must take into account the provision of the necessary place for that because this type needs a large, green place for the size of the tree and counting its fruits and benefits, it gives beauty to the home garden with its wonderful shades and here are the methods used to grow berries in the home, which

Growing berries with seeds

Berries can be grown through the seeds, where the berries are taken and left in a well-ventilated place, and when they are completely dry, they are distributed over the soil and placed inside specific containers for cultivation, or placed in lines through the use of a small seeder machine, which you plant To a depth of approximately 2 cm, taking into account that the lines are spaced about 20 cm apart from each other.

After planting the mulberry seeds, an appropriate amount of organic fertilizer must be added or replaced with coarse sand or wood shavings, and the seeds are irrigated daily using a spray, taking into account the reduction of the irrigation process when the seeds begin to grow a little, as the irrigation process can be made once every two days, The seed growth usually ends after about 15 days

When 6 leaves of the mulberry tree grow, the irrigation process is reduced to once every 4 days, and during the end of the growth stages it is possible to water every 20 days, and after the growth of the seedlings they are uprooted and arranged according to their length and the thickness of the stem

After that, a tunnel is made half a meter deep and the seedlings are left inside it in a diagonal way, with a little sand placed on it to cover half of the stems, then they are taken care of and irrigated on a daily basis

Growing berries by cuttings

How to plant it After the end of winter, the mulberry tree contains a large group of cuttings, so we remove from the tree a group of good cuttings.

We put the cuttings in a large piece of burlap, wrap it well, then keep the cuttings in the refrigerator.

After all the mature cuttings are obtained from the trees, they are placed in moist sandy soil or places and the beds must be equipped during the spring period, then the cuttings are cut, taking into account that their length reaches 40 cm.

We plant the cuttings in the early spring season, after cutting each cuttings with a length of forty cm, the cuttings are planted within lines and the distance between each line should be approximately 15 cm, then a little sand is added to cover about a quarter of the cuttings, and it must be ensured that The sand is wet, and this method is considered one of the most successful methods of growing berries at all.
