Eucalyptus

£22.00 exc delivery

Eucalyptus trees grow really well in this country and will survive all that our weather can throw at them. They make a great focal point and the silvery leaves look and even smell good all year round.

The delicate silver leaves of these eucalyptus trees make a pretty feature all year round. Currently standing just over 2ft tall these young saplings are surprisingly hardy and will do well planted out in a sheltered garden

70+cm tall in a 5L pot Sorry we do not have this plant in stock at the moment, but please call on 0845 226 8026, or use the contact us link at the bottom of the page.

Looking after your Eucalyptus
These instructions are sent with the plant gift
This elegant Eucalyptus tree is surprisingly hardy and will do well in a sunny spot in the garden.
Whilst your plant is in a small pot it will need regular watering. Aim to water it heavily and then allow the top of the compost to dry out before watering heavily again. As soon as practical your eucalyptus tree will benefit from being planted out in the garden or potted up in a much larger pot. Add a top dressing of well rotted manure or other rich compost to help your plant settle in.
These plants are already over a year old and take around 10 years to fully mature
Your plant shouldn’t need much feeding but if you are keeping it in the small pot for a while or the leaves start to appear pale of mottled then a good general purpose feed will always give it a good boost. Eucalyptus trees are reasonably hardy but if we do have particularly cold spells (-5C or colder) then a fleece or heavy straw mulch will give your plant a bit more protection especially in the first couple of years. If some of the leaves do get damaged in severe frost just prune them off and your tree will put on new growth in the spring.

Eucalyptus
Eucalyptus Gunni
Also known as the cider gum tree
White flowers in late summer
This variety is native to Tasmania and does surprisingly well in the UK. Eucalyptus Gunnii is hardy down to -14C and for that reason is one of the most popular Eucalyptus trees for UK gardens. The immature round leaves eventually give way to the longer oval foliage as the tree matures
Eucalyptus wood, oil and sap have been harvested by the australian aboriginals throughout their history.
Oil from Eucalyptus trees is used in aromatherapy, as a mosquito repellant and in a number of herbal remedies for treating everything from the common cold to rheumtism. The young foliage is particlarly prized by florists as the evergreen stems keep their colour well over time.

" Just to say our friends were absolutely delighted with the plant we ordered through your company. The plant 'was in perfect condition'- 'very attractively packaged' & the 'large handwritten card was beautiful'. Smashing service which I will happily use again. Thank you.
