Re: mulberry tree guilds
- Hi Simon,
Walnut grows with Mulberry well, just to let you know. Mulberry is a good buffer tree to buffer the effects of walnut from other plants. Mulberry has a tap root, if that helps with designing a guild.

We are in the early stages of planning a major forest garden. one of my tasks is to research companion plants for mulberry trees (mainly morus nigra variety). I am a real novice and was looking for hints or leads to more info in this. The pfaf database, great as it is, has limited info relating specifically to mulberry guilds (or I have looked in the wrong place). Any leads, info greatly appreciated.
Maybe you could plant Sutherlandia frutescens?
I have plants here in Flanders, from seeds purchased from Silverhill seeds in SA.
