rooting white mulberry

A friend of mine has a white mulberry tree. Is it possible to cut off a small branch and root it? If so, how?

Mulberries are easy to root. Take a 6 inch long cutting of soft growth and peel all the leaves off except for the very top ones. If the top ones are big you can cut them in half to reduce water evaporation. Stick the cuttings in potting soil and keep them in the shade. Misting them from time to time helps. You can use a rooting hormone but it probably isnt necessary. If you are in zone 6 or less you might want to keep the rooted cuttings at arround 40 degrees over winter. You dont want them outside because they may not survive with such a small root system, but you dont want them above 40 because you want them to go dormant. A cold garage would work as long as its not too cold.

Would this method also work if the cuttings were just placed in the ground?
