Although not as well-known as the more established King James mulberry, Wellington produces larger and blacker fruits, and is likely to ripen a week earlier (towards the end of August in southern England).
Sorry we have not been able to produce any trees of this variety this season.
We may still be able to propagate it to order for you. Please contact us for more details.
Wellington is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, although fruiting may be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby.
Important: advice about pollination
Mulberry trees are self-fertile, easy to grow, and tend not to suffer from diseases. The most important thing for a newly-planted mulberry is to keep it well-watered over the spring and summer, and feed it regularly until the tree has established
Fruiting should begin after 7-8 years, and the tree will continue to grow for a decade or more, reaching a height and spread of about 6m / 20ft.
As with all mulberry trees, pruning is best avoided and is rarely necessary.
All our trees are grown in the UK.
