Gum tree Eucalyptus gunnii grey-green

Eucalyptus gunnii 'n.v.t.'
Delightful fragrance and repels mosquitoes!
Fast growing and keeps its leaves. De gum tree (Eucalyptus gunni) is a beautiful plant for indoors and outdoors. The eucalyptus has aromatic leaves whose oils are often used to treat respiratory problems. The scent also repels mosquitoes—multifunctional! This evergreen plant is very attractive with its rounded leaves that become sickle-shaped when the plant matures. Between October and December, the eucalyptus blooms with subtle, white flowers. Plant the tree from February and December.
The gum tree is moderately hardy, up to -10 degrees Celsius. If it gets too cold, either cover the ground or bring the tree inside. The best position for this asset is in the sun or in the half shadow. The gum tree tolerates drought well. Keep the soil almost dry in winter. In the other seasons, give it a bit water once a week.
All in all, a special and multifunctional tree!

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.

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.
