Eucalyptus from Seed
Answered by: Inge Poot
Question from: Lori
Posted on: May 17, 2004

I just recently started some silver dollar eucalyptus seeds in the house. I was just wondering if a potted planter in full sun would be okay? I was going to bring it in the house in the fall. What would you suggest?

Silver dollar eucalyptus likes full to half sun. Bringing it in the fall is a must in areas where it freezes in the winter, since it is not frost hardy.

Try to not disturb the roots unless absolutely necessary, since eucalyptus often do not recover from such a shock. For them potting-on rather than re-potting is a better idea.
