The delicate silver leaves of these Eucalyptus trees make a pretty feature all year round yet they are surprisingly tough, surving all that our UK weather has to throw at them.

I bought this together with a beautiful bergamot as an impulse present for myself. I asked for a 4 seasons lemon as the rescue plant which was supplied but any of the choices would have been fine. I was surprised by the quality of the plant which had a large sturdy trunk with a small well pruned head. It is slightly yellowing but just needs a good feed and some sunlight - there was even a pot of food in the package. I am looking forward to seeing it recover in my conservatory and will buy more if it is successful - I have seen similar or worse plants for sale at full price in garden centres - well worth a punt.

I asked for kumquat and got exactly that. Lovely little tree. All it needed was a good feed.

Wanted some winter citrus feed for our large lemon tree. Decided to give a 'rescue' tree a chance, which included a tub of citrus winter feed with it. So glad we did, as we now have a kaffir lime tree as well. It was a lot healthier than I expected. I would definately recommend Plants4Presents.

I think this is a brilliant idea and doesn’t cost much more than an extra pot of feed. My lime arrived without the feed (which was supposed to be included) but that was sorted out quickly and pleasantly. Have a go - give a plant a second chance!

Looking after your Eucalyptus Tree

This elegant Eucalyptus tree is surprisingly hardy and will do well in a sunny spot in the garden.

Eucalyptus trees can live for decades and will eventually become a sizeable tree. They are completely frost hardy and evergreen and will do well in a range of soils as long as they have good drainage. Like most trees they don’t need a lot of pruning or care but pick a spot where they have room to grow and show off their winter foliage.

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.

Problem solving 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 to protect the roots 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

Scientific Name: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
