This Arbutus is also known as a strawberry tree. It symbolises gratitude and good fortune creating a special thank you gift they will always remember!

All our trees are organically nurtured in The Present Tree's gardens. When you place your order a beautiful tree will be freshly selected by our devoted gardeners here, before being carefully wrapped in organza and placed in its luxury parcel.
This ornamental tree (Arbutus unedo) is also known as the Strawberry tree, it will happily thrive in any garden and is wonderful for wildlife, especially garden birds, butterflies and bees. It will also look fabulous growing in a flower pot on a balcony or terrace.
Every Arbutus is growing in an organic pot filled with top-notch compost, so no green fingers are required, just add natural daylight and water. We have added special nutrients to your tree’s compost to create the perfect balance of nourishment. This organic goodness will release into the soil for the next 9 months to ensure your tree continues to flourish.
In a few weeks, plant your tree, still in its organic pot, in a large flower pot (one with holes so excess water can drain away) or plant in a sunny spot in the garden.
All The Present Tree's products and packaging are 100% biodegradable, compostable, reusable or recyclable.
Your parcel travels in a clear eco bag so the couriers and recipients are aware a living tree is inside it and must be opened as soon as possible.
The luxury parcel is 50cm high and 10cm diameter. The total height of this Arbutus is 40-45cm. It is quite happy to be pruned in early spring and may reach a height of 4 metres in 15 years, if allowed to grow naturally.
