Mulberry Stem Cuttings

I trim my mulberry plant very often when I need to pluck the leaves. Those leaves would be dried and used to brew tea for my brother. It is believed that the mulberry leaves tea can lower cholesterol level and high blood pressure. My brother consumes it regularly and it seems to improve his condition.


Recently I have trimmed the mulberry plant. Usually I will give away the stems to friends who are keen to plant them. This time I decided to plant those stems in the container used for planting choy sum. Due to the regular rain, most of the stems have shoots now. Amazingly, one even produces many fruits! A forummer from our community forum, USJ.com, has requested for one of this plant. So, I will get to pass on the joy of gardening with our community here.

Hello J.C.

I am looking for mulberry plant in Klang Valley, but didn't have much luck.

I wonder if you still have any mulberry's cuttings to be given away?
