Mulberry trees are a very popular choice and always sell out before the end of the season (August). If we are sold out you can still purchase one now for guaranteed delivery when the growing season starts again in August.
Wellington Mulberry Tree
The Wellington Mulberry (Morus nigra 'Wellington) produces large, attractive reddish/black mulberries and ripens before the Chelsea Mulberry. Our Wellington Mulberry tree is self-fertile which means it will produce fruits without the need for a similar plant nearby to pollinate the blossoms. The fruits are ready for picking late summer and they have a good flavour coming from a soft flesh.
It is supplied at a height of between 1.50 and 2.40 metres in a container for year round planting and comes as a Half Standard or Quarter Standard which means it has been pruned early in the growing process to give more of an ornamental tree shape.
We usually have several size and height options for the Wellington Mulberry tree, these being the 7 and 12 litre although at certain times of the year we have additional options in the 12 Litre. The options we currently have available will be the ones shown above this text. Below is an explanation of all the options that the Wellington Mulberry could come in.
Wellington Mulberry Tree Options
5-7 Litre: Usually 100 to 150 cm, 1-2 years old and come as a Maiden (you can prune to shape as you require).
12 Litre: 150 to 200 cm, 2-3 years old and pruned to be a bush shape (branches start lower to the ground and bit of a vase shape)
12 Litre 1/4 Standard: 150 to 200 cm, 2-3 years old and come as a Quarter Standard (pruned to be sort of lollipop shaped but with branches starting lower to the ground)
12 Litre 1/2 Standard: 180 to 240 cm, 2-3 years old and come as a Half Standard (pruned to be a lollipop shape)
If you are confused or not interested in the shape of the tree then go for the 12 Litre bush as you usually pay a little more for quarter and half standards.
If you are looking to make an ornamental statement or want the most vigorous Wellington Mulberry you can find, go for the 12 Litre 1/2 Standard.
We will include a message card included at no additional cost if required.
See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Wellington Mulberry Trees
Dear Alan and team, I'm sure you must have one! Just to let you know the Trev, or Trevor as we like to call him here in Surrey (or Sorry) depending on the 4 x 4 idiots, has arrived in fine fettle. He is looking splendid and is settling in to his new surroundings beautifully. We already adore him and he has quickly become a favourite in our little woodland. As you will see by the photos he has friends already. Pat, Monty and Amber to name but a few!!! He is still finding his roots but I'm sure with the possessive care he is receiving from Nick my husband, It won't be long before we start to see his true character, or divorce proceedings if the obsession gets any more out of hand!!!
You can be assured that Trev has found his Forever Home and will have a happy life here at Thimbles Woods. By the way, service, packaging and all that other boring stuff was first class. Kind Regards Ros Allen....Tree Lover Extraordinaire. 0718
Evening Alan, So sorry I haven't been in touch to say: Thank you ever so much for the Fruit trees. They arrived safe and sound. Were planted the next day and look great. Thanks also for the advice and guidance! Genuinely appreciated. We'll be in touch with our next project soon :)Best wishes, Nicki 0117
Dear Alan, It was a very good day indeed when a fantastic specimen of a Wellington Mulberry tree arrived. Nothing puny but a full blooded tree with luxuriant foliage.It was worth the wait. Hope you did not stress out too much regarding what reception the carefully nurtured tree would have. It is going to be safely installed near our living room window to be admired as the seasons go by. The exhausting process by which tree came to pop up in Wales did not escape our notice . Superlative effort. We have a new dependant and hope to care for it so that it has a happy fulfilled life .We thank you for your amazing attention to detail. It is clear that you feel deeply about living things and we feel that you should give yourself a congratulatory few minutes to chill and reflect on a task well done. Best wishes Alia and Roger 0816
Hello Alan. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. You might like to know that the last tree I purchased from you which was the Black Mulberry, is an absolutely beautiful tree. The shape, the foliage is stunning. We had our first fruit last year - almost a basin full, this year we had about a pound and a half. Not huge in size but then the tree is still young, but the flavour was lovely. I am very proud of my Mulberry which has the centre of a large area near the orchard. Just thought you would be interested. Take care and have a good week. (weather permitting) Regards.... Sandy. 0915
Just wanted to drop you a line to say my mulberry tree arrived yesterday. Beautiful condition and much bigger than I expected. Really pleased. Many thanks Jane Jerdan. 0815
