An evergreen Australian

What smells wonderful, is an evergreen and comes from Australia? It can only be Eucalyptus gunnii! With its lovely smell, it also keeps the mosquitoes at bay — win-win!  The gum tree, as the eucalyptus is also known, keeps its silvery blue leaves all year long.  

To encourage it to grow to its full potential, plant it in the sun or partial shade. The tree grows fast, so prune the top of the young tree to keep it at a manageable size. Ideal for planting in a flower pot — for your patio or balcony. Plant in soil that retains moisture well and water regularly for the first few months after planting.

Planting

What do I need?
• A trowel
• Garden peat and compost

Make sure that the root ball of the Eucalyptus gunnii is sufficiently moist. Place the tree in a bucket of lukewarm water before planting. The Eucalyptus grows well in soil that is nutrient-rich and not too dry. You can improve poor-quality soil by mixing in some compost. Place Eucalyptus in a wind-protected location with full sun.

Make a large hole and add some garden peat and compost. Place the Eucalyptus at the proper height, so that the top of the root ball is just below ground level. Fill the planting hole up with soil, press it down firmly and water immediately. The Eucalyptus does not do well when frequently re-planted.

Care

What do I need?
• Water
• Pruning shears

Maintenance
For the first month after planting the Eucalyptus you should water it regularly. If it is colder than minus 10 degrees Celsius, protect the stem of the tree with a straw mat or bubble wrap.

Pruning
You do not need to prune a Eucalyptus, but you can if you like. If you want beautiful, new leaves you can trim the branches back during spring. Remove the lowest branches of a young tree, so that the crown of the tree will rise higher.
If you prune too often, the tree may turn into a shrub.
 

Extra

The evergreen Eucalyptus Gunnii is originally from Australia. Its smooth bark is grey in colour and very attractive. Its aromatic leaves are also beautiful in flower arrangements. The leaves produce the famous eucalyptus oil.
