The Eucalyptus is well known for its refreshing fragrance and beautiful looks, and can be grown outdoors or inside, too. Not to mention its oils are often used in aromatherapy and for home remedies, it's a real star of a plant. The Eucalyptus can grow up to 30m and flowers between mid-summer to mid-autumn.
Always getting bitten by mosquitoes in summer? Having this tree in your corner could prove useful as they dislike Eucalyptus and tend to stay far away.
Position your Eucalyptus somewhere it can get full or half sun and aim to keep its soil moist, but not soggy. Water regularly during the first few months of planting - once the plant has settled, you can reduce the amount of water it gets. Also, this plant is mildly toxic to pets so keep this in mind if your furry friends are prone to nibbling. Paired with our perfectly fitting, ribbed ceramic pot.
