[nafex] Dwarf Geraldi Mulberry

I had zero success on rooting Geraldi with hardwood or softwood cuttings. I would like 
to get a bud stick or two of the Dwarf Issai and graft onto the Geraldi.

I tried to root hardwood cuttings of Geraldi and they rooted but never 
leafed out and eventually died. I would like to know how this turns out for 

I also have the Dwarf Issai mulberry which is only a foot tall (on its own 
roots) and is loaded with fruit. I may have a very limited amount 
of budwood available if anyone is interested. It is supposed to be hardy to 
zone 5 but I have never tried to verify this since it is so easy to grow in 
a pot. It is supposedly a dwarf Morus alba and I got my original plant 
from Logees.
