I have five 'Arbutus Unedo' (Strawberry) shrubs, the leaves have gone brown and crisp & some of the stems are looking brown, how can I revive them or has frost killed them. The same has happened with my Orleanders. Can you please tell me any way I may be able to save them.



It'll be the winter, too cold for them - you can try removing any dead wood, cutting back to live wood if there is any. If the whole topgrowth including the main stem are dead back to the roots, with no sign of growth or life anywhere, then they're goners. oleanders are even less hardy than arbutus unedo.
