Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. In 2012 we opened for the NGS. https://www.ngs.org.uk/find-a-garden/garden/26064/

There are lots of ‘strawberries’ on my #arbutus and the flowers are beginning to appear too! #arbutusunedo #strawberry-tree #redfruits #whiteflowers #evergreen #mygardentoday 💚❤️💚

Apparently they don’t taste anything like strawberries although I have to admit I’ve never tried one so I can’t vouch for that! 🤣🍓😘 @charlotte

I think it's your duty to try and report back - unless it's poisonous!!!

I don’t think they’re poisonous just not very nice 🥴 @charlotte

As the flowers on shrubs are fading and the trees are losing their leaves it’s great to see the #strawberrytree come alive! The bees are buzzing around it, delighted to have such a plentiful source of pollen 🐝🐝🐝 #beemagnet #arbutus #strawberrytree #whitebells #evergreen #mygardentoday 18/10/2019

As the deciduous trees begin to lose their leaves the #strawberrytree comes into its own. Last year’s flowers are fruiting and this year’s flowers are just beginning to open. #arbutusunedo #redfruits #whiteflowers #evergreen #smalltree #mygardentoday 14/10/2018

Mine is now about 10ft Angie @angiecrazycatlady but it can be kept smaller by pruning 👍
