> This weeping mulberry i got from One Green World has survived over its very first winter 2 unprotected nights in a row where it hit -50 air temps before windchill and one night hit -60 for a few hours...
Thanks. I might look into that on my next attempt.
But I'm not sure that cold winter temperatures are the problem. It got
to -12 one time last winter, nothing like the cold temperatures you
have. And I keep them mulched in the winter, so I don't think the soil
is drying out too badly. But none of my mulberries seem to be ready when
winter arrives. The green leaves usually freeze on the tree (while
everything else has normally lost its leaves by then). I wonder if that
hasn't been the main problem.
But I don't know what to do about it.
