A virtual talk with mulberry expert Dr Peter Coles as part of Urban Tree Festival 2021.
In this special live edition of Midday Modern Conversations, mulberry expert Dr Peter Coles will speak to our Historic Houses Senior Manager John Collins about mulberry trees and in particular our own historic mulberry tree in the centre of our garden, which is the last living remnant of the garden’s origin as a 17th century orchard. After their conversation, members of the live virtual audience will be invited to ask Peter their own questions about mulberry trees. Ever wanted to know how long they live? What’s the difference between a black and a white mulberry? Come find out.
