Not much flowers all summer, it's not in the nature of plants. Some advertised as flowering all summer are a bit sparse outside their proper flowering time. Why not have 2 different ones to follow on

tbh I'd be bored by the end of summer if the same things had flowered all through

Which type of mulberry is this?

So much depends on growing conditions. I should think it's near impossible to tell one from t'other as with many cultivars.

Unless you buy from a reliable source that can confirm the tree has been grown from cuttings/graftings from the original cultivar. No chance. Add in the fact that some suppliers don't know or care about the origins and may be selling seedlings from a named cultivar ( a seedling is never the cultivar however much it may look like it), then the chances reduce even more.

Tell your friend it's not a hybrid, hybrids are a cross between two species. The named varieties are all cultivars Cul(tivated) var(ieties) of one species, Morus nigra.

don't store them, sow them, straight away. Leave them outside, not in the GH.

It does get leggy. I sometimes dig up patches and replant the best bits more deeply

yes, it's dead easy, Briza media, perennial, larger heads. Briza maxima, native perennial, much more delicate looking.
