  • New in 2012
  • Evergreen shrub
  • Year-round interest
For year round interest, this superb Strawberry Tree is hard to beat. Arbutus unedo 'Compacta' forms a neat evergreen shrub or small tree that can be easily grown in a sheltered border or container. The small, lantern-shaped autumn flowers are followed by rounded scarlet red fruits that take a full year to ripen - so fruits and flowers can often be seen on the plant at the same time! Although edible, the fruits of the Strawberry Tree have a sharp aftertaste, so they best made into jams and preserves for a sweeter Guava-like flavour. Height and spread: 150cm (59"). Supplied in 9cm pot.

Flowering Months
Feed and water Strawberry Trees regularly until fully established. Once established, Arbutus trees require little attention except for the occasional removal of damaged, diseased and misplaced shoots in winter or spring.
Repot Strawberry Trees into larger pots using a soil based compost such as John Innes No 3, and grow on in cool conditions until large enough to be planted in its final position. When Arbutus is well grown, transplant into any non alkaline, fertile, moist but free draining soil. Incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or compost into the soil prior to planting. Choose a position in full sun with shelter from cold winds. Although perfectly hardy once mature, Arbutus plants will appreciate a layer of fleece for winter protection when young.
