How are the mulberries growing? In this growlog I show you the growth from seed to seedling and detail some of my challenges.

The red mulberries planted previously had successfully germinated. Here is one of the container showing growth.
As the mulberries become crowded, I translplanted a few of them into the following containers.
As the seed germination continued, more and more space was required to house their containers; as a result, all the mulberries were moved to the basement. This move was a relief to us as our kitchen space was again free for our use.
Please note, a few other trees are in this picture which was planted separately:
- Columnar English Oak
- Unspecified White Oak (Could be English, White, Bur?)
- Honey Locust
- Black Locust
In the past I’ve experimented with writing software for sensor data collection. You can see the code via:
Here are the pictures with the device.
Honestly, this is an exiting development! The winter is cold outside, but inside the basement (~18 degrees Celsius) the sea of green leaves brings much relaxation.
Major Expansion + Growth
This is my favourite picture as it does a good job showing all the greenery that my family had a chance to enjoy during the cold and grey days of winter.
And there it is - major growth and expansion. Stay toned to the next grow journal were I placed the mulberries outside! If you want to read about other trees/plants then feel free to checkout my grow journals.
Has this peeked your curiosity about doing your own growing? Have you tried growing before? Is there anything I could do to improve? Let me know in the comments below.
