how do you plant a strawberry tree



Hi Starlu which ones are you refering to?
'Strawberry tree' may refer to several species of trees with edible fruits:
Arbutus menziesii (Ericaceae) also known as Pacific Madrone which is native to the west coast of North America.
Arbutus unedo (Ericaceae) native to western Europe and the Mediterranean basin, unedo grows widely in Greece along with a more tender and spring-flowering species called the Grecian strawberry tree (Arbutus andrachne).
Muntingia calabura (Malvaceae) native to the American tropics.
Myrica rubra (Myricaceae), referred to as the Chinese strawberry tree.
