Developing a mulberry bonsai

This mulberry was collected last spring and is one of the trees that is not going into the ground. It's a strong grower and very hardy. It does appear to get some type of fungus which results in spots on the leaves. I hope it doesn't cause any die back but I have noticed that all the local mulberries have this condition. I know I have already posted this tree but I am getting anxious for spring. Some of my trees will be spending the summer in Indiana where I trust they will be cared for. This will ensure that they grow freely without me being tempted to trim them every other week. Well, maybe I still will with the more vigorous ones. I will try to get some pictures when the leaves first break.
