Arbutus unedo is admired in the Bots

by Ciaran Burke

Despite the rain, I spent a very nice day with students from the RHS home study course. Arbutus x andrachnoides looked superb!

  1. One of my favourites Ciaran. It’s got to the point that when I’m on tour up in the Botanics now with my own students that this is top of the list to see. Love the shiny bark.

    • Hi Ena, it is a wonderful tree, but unfortunately it is too tender for our garden in Mayo. I have to be happy just seeing it in the bots. I have some nice pics on my photo web site.
