  • Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit
  • Grow for big leaves or flowers
  • Scented and great for shelter belts

The Cider Gum is a great garden tree to invest in whether you grow it in a 40cm (16in) container for a 3-4m (10-13ft) high tree, or grow it directly in a bed to grow into a high tree. All silvery leaves catch the sun attractively on this evergreen tree with elegant branches surrounded by a white and green patchy bark. Little flowers appear in late winter too to give your tree that extra impact.

Happy in dry conditions your Cider Gum tree is perfect for drier parts of the UK, though this great tree is equally happy in wetter areas too. As trees, Eucalyptus gunnii (Cider Gum) make great wind breaks, useful to have at the side of a plot to filter strong and damaging winds.

Your plant arrives as an established 3 litre container tree ready for you to put in the ground on arrival. If you need to wait a few days before planting, keep your Eucalyptus gunnii (Cider Gum) tree somewhere out of direct sunlight and give it plenty of water initially.

Useful tip:

In the first and second year give your tree frost protection by placing a horticultural fleece over the canopy of leaves when frost is on the cards. If you are growing your Cider Gum in a container you can transfer your tree to a greenhouse over winter.

For extra large leaves (rather than flowers), cut your stems in February or early March to around 5cm from the base every couple of years. This encourage multiple stems to emerge from the soil (rather than a single trunk) with extra large leaves than if left to grow as a tree.
