If no one replies here, theshrimptank.com and tannin aquatics both carry them.

yea, i know shrimp websites usually carry them but I've seen the members on here sell alot more and at a way better price. I guess i just have to wait til spring/fall when members mulberry tree starts growing. =)

I won't have Mulberry Leaves until spring hits.  Then I'll be overrun with them.

buy more than you need when @wyzazz has some as alot of us shrimpers use these leaves and they tend to disappear.  some dont have access to them, or dont have access to non-polluted mulberry trees.

 

they mulberry dust that he sells is great and could hold you over till you can find some leaves.

Is there anything special you do with the leaves like boil or sun dry? I ask because we have several mulberry trees on our property and have read that people feed these to shrimps. The leaves are just now starting to appear here. I know the squirrels always go nuts for the mulberries when they start to ripen. I also have a huge pear tree too and it's full of leaves now. Are these leaves beneficial as well? All trees have never seen pesticides and are 100% organic.

I don't use pesticides or anything so I just dry them flat for storage and package them in bags.

Is there a specific type of mulberry tree to get?  I found a dwarf everberring tree that stays under 6 feet.  They advertise it as being good for container gardening.  Was thinking I could move it inside during the winter.  Lastly how much can u take before it hurts the tree?

The type of tree doesn't matter much.  I pull a few as I need them throughout the year, then I pull all of them in the fall to dry and use.  I'd say that safely, you might be able to pull 20% of the leaves during the growing season without harming the tree.
