Mulberry tree, Chicago

bonsaifromscratch(5b)May 11, 2014

Hi everyone,

I really want to grow my own mulberry in a container. I live in Chicago, and I recently found out that nurseries in the city are not allowed to sell mulberries because they stain the sidewalk.

Is anyone in the Chicago area who has a mulberry willing to share some cuttings? Or would anyone know of nurseries outside the city that might have these? (I highly doubt they would, as mulberries are considered weeds in many places it seems...)

Thanks for any help!

Mulberries are sold by hundreds of online nurseries.
One Green World
Edible Landscaping
and Rolling River are all top rate nurseries that sell mulberries.
I guess it depends on the crowd, but nobody I know would ever consider them weeds. Highly sought after, yes, weeds, no.
