Hi. I am planting Mulberry cuttings at the moment. I've been told I can plant these cuttings now and use last years sapwood up to 6ft long. What I also need to know is, should I remove the buds and if so, just the buds that will be under the ground or all the buds except the top say 1ft? Does anyone know.
