Starting Honey Eucalyptus
Answered by: Richters Staff
Question from: Jennifer Francis
Posted: Before April 1998

How can I get my eucalyptus seeds to germinate? What conditions are required? Also what is the average time for germination?

Most eucalyptus seeds germinate easily and quickly, taking as few as four days to come up. However, the seeds of some species, including honey eucalyptus, can go dormant. If seeds are not up within 3 weeks move the seedbox to a fridge for 4 weeks, then move it back to room temperature and normal light. Germination should begin promptly.
