Eucalyptus gunnii
An evergreen Australian
What tree smells wonderful, is evergreen and comes from Australia? It's this Eucalyptus gunnii in a nursery pot. We love the fabulous fragrance wafting from this tree. Thankfully, mosquitoes hate it. They stay far away. This eucalyptus, also known as the cider gum, keeps its silvery blue leaves all year long. In warm countries, the eucalyptus may even flower after several years. The eucalyptus grows quickly. Keep it small by trimming the top off the young tree. That means you can plant it in more places than just the garden. They can also be planted flower pots on a patio, roof terrace or balcony.
The tree needs a spot in full or half sun. The soil should be moist. Water it regularly during the first few months after 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.

In a pot
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.

In the garden
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. Place it in a wind-protected location in full sun.

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.
