Growing your own mulberry tree is a great way to enjoy fresh fruit and bring beauty and protection to your landscape. Our varieties are vigorous, productive and hardy. They are tolerant of many different kinds of soil and can thrive in a wide range of conditions. Throughout the summer, these trees will continue to produce unique, oblong-shaped berries with a sweet flavor that is great for fresh eating or making jams, wines, cobblers and other desserts. And, because of their long fruiting season, they make excellent protectors. While many of your other fruits and berries are ripening, mulberry trees will lure birds and squirrels, which prefer mulberries, away from those trees and plants.

To ensure your growing success and satisfaction, there are a few things to consider when you buy a mulberry tree.
Your climate plays an important role in whether a tree will produce fruit or even survive. Our mulberry trees can be grown in many different climates, including most parts of the North, anywhere in the Midwest, and because of the heat tolerance of some varieties, all over the South and West. Before ordering, make sure your selection’s recommended hardiness zone range includes your area.
All of our mulberry trees are shipped to you in our exclusive EZ Start® bottomless pots. These containers allow some roots to be air pruned as they grow out the bottom, so that a dense mass of productive feeder roots can grow within the pot to make transplanting and establishing easier and quicker. These roots also help to accelerate growth rates and produce earlier fruit. When shipped to you, the trees will be approximately 1-2' tall.
Since 1816, Stark Bro's has promised to please customers with the very best fruit trees and landscaping products, no matter what. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, let us know within a year of delivery and we will send you a free one-time replacement or a refund of the full purchase price.
I'm very excited to announce that after 75 years, Miller Nurseries will now become part of Stark Bro's, a highly respected nursery company that's been "growing" their famous legacy since 1816.
For nearly 200 years, Stark Bro's has been producing high-quality fruit trees, berries and garden plants for gardeners like you. With their great nursery stock and expert advice, they've been helping generations of families reap not only the rewards of growing their own fruits and nuts, but to enjoy huge savings in the process. Stark Bro's has a long-standing reputation for quality, honesty and really taking care of their customers.
When my brother David passed away suddenly last spring, I knew it was time to retire. One of the first things I did was to call Cameron Brown, the president of Stark Bro's. He is a long-time friend and a very trustworthy fellow, and treats his customers like gold. I knew he would take care of you in exactly the same way. David would have liked this arrangement, and I take comfort in that.
It's only going to get better as part of the Stark Bro's family. You'll now be able to come here to StarkBros.com and sign in with your existing username and password, and purchase products just like you did on the Miller Nurseries website... only the selection will be much larger! You'll still be able to buy Miller's familiar "Canandaigua Quality" hardy plants as well as the enormous assortment of trees and plants Stark Bro's offers.
We want to take this opportunity to acknowledge our family, our wonderful employees, and especially you - our loyal customers - for your support and patronage over these last 75 years. Thank you for being such an important part of our heritage.
John Miller, CEO
