King White Mulberry

Postby DrHarry » Fri Aug 04, 2006 9:46 am

Hi

I've been trying to find a nursery or plant supplier that can send seeds or seedlings of the King White Mulberry (known as Shahtoot in Australia) to TAsmania. I finally found this site while looking, so I was wondering if anyone might be able to help.

Species name is Morus Alba, in the US I believe it is known as the "Pakistani" white mulberry.

I'm interested in either the red or the white version.

If anyone could help it would be much appreciated.

cheers

Give Harmony a ring on 03 6248 6149. They're a landscaping service in Lauderdale near Hobart. I recently got some raspberries and gooseberries from them, so you never know your luck. They might not have the variety you're after, though, but they _may_ know who to contact. Good luck.

PS you could always try ebay for seeds ... and then try to get them into Tasmania.
