Having an orchard on your property is an amazing thing, but it can be an expensive pursuit. Buying saplings to plant can be costly but if you have a little time and patience then there may be a better way to build that orchard of your dreams. Why not give grafting a try.
All my life mulberries have been one of my favorites, imagine my surprise when I found out most people despise this wonderful tree, they consider it invasive and messy. So I thought I would share a few of the wonderful qualities of this underappreciated tree and perhaps persuade a few self sufficient folks to make it part of their homestead.
