5ft 'Weeping Mulberry Tree | 12L Pot | By Frank P Matthews™
5ft Weeping Mulberry Tree | 12L Pot | Morus Pendula
A fantastic weeping tree, ideal for a small garden and slow growing so requires very little maintenance.
As the tree matures, it produces a dome of weeping branches that cascade all the way to ground level from it 2 metre trunk creating a real centerpiece for your garden.
There are very few weeping trees on the market and this is one of the less well known but a real star in our opinion.

Pots and Packaging
Larger pots (2L and above) are wrapped in waxed paper and then attached to a cardboard base so they stay stable in the box. The waxed paper prevents the compost from spilling out and gives the base some added protection from damp compost. For large numbers of plants, pallets may be used for shipping.
The nursery will ensure the plant is moist while it's waiting to be picked up. Our quality control team waters the plant before packing them where necessary to make sure that the plant is suitably watered for transport. Plants with long delicate stems are secured with canes to prevent damage.

Typically plants are delivered ready to plant and will take some time to settle, grow and look more like the product image above.
Advice on hot and droopy plants
If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.
Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
