Potting on and coppicing Eucalyptus seedlings (Late Spring)
It’s Late Spring and the seedlings are ready for a bit more room and last years seedlings are ready to be coppiced to turn them from trees into shrubs.
Please don’t coppice mature plants, Eucalyptus does not respond well to hard dramatic pruning. Plants may go into shock and die. Instead order seeds from us in January and grow your own very Eucalyptus plants.
Eucalyptus update (Late Summer)
Its time to revisit our Eucalyptus Seedlings and the plants we coppiced in Late Spring.
Over watered Eucalyptus can result in oedema, a blistering of the leaves.
Edema, or oedema develops when roots take up water faster than it can be used by the plant (transpired out through the pores in the leaves). It is more common in winter due to the lower light levels, cooler and damper conditions that naturally slow down the rate of transpiration.
