3 Mul­berry TIM­ING: sum­mer (berries, fo­liage, branches)

NZ Lifestyle Block - - The good life -

Mul­ber­ries are a great choice: • they have ex­cep­tion­ally sweet wood – stock love it; • cut and feed the leaves and young branches – stock will eat the lot; • bird love the berries, and you can har­vest them for a pie; • they grow into at­trac­tive shade trees; • they have very deep roots for soil sta­bil­i­sa­tion.

Dress chil­dren in old clothes when they go to raid the berries – stains are dif­fi­cult to re­move.
