9GreenBox – Cider Gum Eucalyptus Herb 20 Seeds – Eucalyptus gunnii

HERBS: Treat yourself to fresh herbs right from your garden! The difference when home grown is impressive! All are excellent for adding distinctive flavor to meat, and fish dishes, gravies, soups, salads and vegetables. They are fun to grow and make an attractive garden addition!

Eucalyptus is an enormous and fascinating genus. It comprises over 700 species, and accounts for more than two-thirds of Australia’s vegetation. It is unfortunate that they are frequently regarded as not being reliably hardy outside of the subtropics, because it discourages people from planting them in cooler areas. There are many reasons to plant a eucalyptus–to begin with, they help to control aphids and other insects, most of them will grow rapidly, even in poor soil (12′ per year is not out of the question), and most of them are very attractive–eucalyptus have a beauty all their own. And eucalyptus foliage, which shows incredible variety, is excellent for cut foliage in floral arrangements.

Unless it is to be grown as a pot plant for its entire life (more on that below), a eucalyptus seedling must be planted as soon as possible, before too many roots reach the edges and bottom of its pot. Eucalyptus ought to be planted when they are no more than 8 – 14 inches in height.

This tree is a native of Australia, but nowadays it is popular in European and American ornamental gardens. The foliage has an attractive silvery-bluish colour and a fine, aromatic fragrance which keeps gnats at bay. Growth is extremely rapid.

Culture: Sun or part shade. Hardy in zones 7-10. Can also be grown as a patio plant, outdoors in the summer, indoors in the winter.

Uses: Ornamental plantings, hedges or windbreaks, shade trees, firewood, cut flowers, foliage and fruits, frost-resistant plant. Definitely one you should have!

    Looking up Hi folks. Im from south dakota. We get bad snow and ice storms here each year so this plant will definitely be remaining potted for its life. I do landscaping for the university of south dakota and most will be donated to the school once mature. I use a shallow and wide square pot with a professional seeding mix. Put the seeds on top of the soil as directions indicated. Took awhile but we finally have signs of life 5 seeds sprouted out of the 20 so far. However many of the other seeds we started are being sluggish as well and we think it might be the seed starting mix. We use a warming table set at 75 degrees and i cant stress how important this is for a plant like this. You must be able to keep the soil tempterature up fairly high. As they get older i will come back with pictures of how they turned out. =)

    Good product 16/20 seeds germinated I purchased these seeds despite the mixed reviews. The packaging was adequate and I followed the written directions word for word. I was able to get 16 of the 20 seeds to germinate over a two month period. I did have to pull one seedling due to a fungus so I did not infect the rest of the plants. I am transplanting the seedlings now but overall I am very satisfied with the results. I used a mix of an organic seed starter and desert sand (50/50) and watered them once a week. Both were purchased locally.
