Mulberries are not too difficult to root, softwood cuttings.  However an
easier way is to graft a good selection onto a seedling.  Around here
seedling are pretty easy to find, there everywhere.  Cut pieces of the
desired plant while they are still dormant and store in refrig.  Put in
baggie with moist paper towel.  When seedling has started to leaf out then
graft your scion onto the rootstock.  The seedling can be any size plant,
just pick spot on limb about same diameter as cutting, about 1/4".  You can
get a book to study up on grafting.  Grafted plants generally come into
bearing early.
