Cider Gum (Eucalyptus gunnii)
The Cider Gum, Eucalyptus gunnii is a beautiful medium sized Eucalypt from Tassie. These tough as hell little guys have a charming rounded, silver-blue, aromatic foliage as a juvenile. This changes to a blue-green and lance shaped foliage as it matures.
They produce many small clusters of white fluffy flowers throughout the summer months.
Water it as you would most indoor plants, that is when the top 2-3 cm of soil in the pot dries out. The period between watering should increase through the colder months as it will take longer for the top few cm of soil to dry. If in doubt hold back on the watering as they are very tolerant of drought conditions, like most Aussie natives, but what it won't handle too well is soggy soil.
To grow well indoors these dudes require bright light so place them within range of a north facing window. Alternatively, position them close to a south facing window to allow them sun throughout the day.
They are currently approximately 25cm tall however they are a medium sized woodland tree in the wild. As such, they will eventually require a place outdoors unless you are happy to chop a hole in your roof! They will perform well as a balcony plant and can be kept on the smaller side if limited by a pot. If you have the space they also could eventually make an excellent feature tree in the back yard.
Greeting your Cider Gum when it arrives
These plants are shipped in a 1.5L nursery pot that is wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in during transport. They will fit any pot from our Classic Pot Range.

Caring for your Cider Gum (Eucalyptus gunnii)
Our special eco packaging
No Plant Stress
Our plant packaging is designed by people know how to keep plants fresh and healthy in transit. Your plants will enjoy a comfortable trip directly from our greenhouse to your door in just a few of days. Your plant will not have to deal with the stress of being bare rooted for transport (how most plants are sent) and you won’t have to deal with the mess and fuss of potting up your new plant when you receive it.
The plastic pot will be wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in place, it will then be tied into a specially designed cardboard insert which will keep it stable and upright throughout its journey. The insert will be glued in place on top of your cardboard wrapped ceramic pot to hold it down and your plant up!
Your plant will come in its plastic pot which we make sure fits perfectly in whichever ceramic pot you choose. Our packaging has been designed to allow us to send your beautiful ceramic pot along with your plant, fully potted, yep in soil, together in the same box.
The thing that we’re most proud of is that our packaging is fully recyclable and re-useable so you don’t have to feel bad about generating more packaging waste. In fact you should feel awesome because ordering from us, online, will generate way less emissions than if you were to drive to the nursery to buy a plant. The only plastic you get will be the plastic pot that your plant comes in and these can be re-used or recycled.
Please note, due to quarantine restrictions on plants and soil, we are not able to deliver plants to WA, NT and TAS.
