After last winter’s (2021) severe cold spell, we have seen that a number of species, such as Eucalyptus viminalis (photo) and Eucalyptus dalrympleana can quickly grow back from the top of the root. Simply cut the dead trunk off above that!
The demand for strong Eucalyptus varieties is increasing all the time. That is why we are working to propagate the strongest trees we have here from our own garden. In collaboration with several other nurseries, the first so called “Hardy Dutch” seedlings are now for sale from July 2021. We can no longer rely on imports from Australia.
On the one hand, the EU is creating trade barriers, making seed imports far too expensive; on the other hand, climate change in Australia is causing a sharp decline in nature. See this alarming article in the Guardian!
