Eucalyptus gunnii - Tree

Eucalyptus gunnii 
Eucalyptus gunnii

Immergrüner Australier

Ein gut riechender Baum, der grün ist und aus Australien stammt? Das ist der Eucalyptus gunnii im Anzuchttopf. Wir lieben den herrlichen Duft, den der Baum verbreitet. Mücken zum Glück nicht. Die nähern sich dem Baum nicht. Der Eukalyptus, auch Gummibaum genannt, behält das ganze Jahr über seine silberblauen Blätter. In warmen Ländern kann der Eukalyptus nach einigen Jahren sogar blühen. Der Eukalyptus wächst schnell. Wir können ihn klein halten, indem wir die Krone vom jungen Baum abschneiden. Deshalb pflanzen wir den Gummibaum nicht nur im Garten. Wir pflanzen ihn auch in Blumentöpfen auf der (Dach-)Terrasse oder dem Balkon. Wir stellen den Baum an einen Platz in der (halb)vollen Sonne. In feuchten Boden. In den ersten Monaten nach dem Pflanzen gießen wir regelmäßig.

Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • What do I need?
    • A trowel
    • Garden peat and compost

    Make sure that the root ball of the Eucalyptus gunnii is sufficiently moist. Place the tree in a bucket of lukewarm water before planting. The Eucalyptus grows well in soil that is nutrient-rich and not too dry. You can improve poor-quality soil by mixing in some compost. Place Eucalyptus in a wind-protected location with full sun.

    In a pot
    Make a large hole and add some garden peat and compost. Place the Eucalyptus at the proper height, so that the top of the root ball is just below ground level. Fill the planting hole up with soil, press it down firmly and water immediately. The Eucalyptus does not do well when frequently re-planted.

    Maintenance
    For the first month after planting the Eucalyptus you should water it regularly. If it is colder than minus 10 degrees Celsius, protect the stem of the tree with a straw mat or bubble wrap.

    Pruning
    You do not need to prune a Eucalyptus, but you can if you like. If you want beautiful, new leaves you can trim the branches back during spring. Remove the lowest branches of a young tree, so that the crown of the tree will rise higher.
    If you prune too often, the tree may turn into a shrub.
