by | Mar 23, 2023

Love the beautiful blue-green and silvery gray foliage of eucalyptus but have some questions about growing it? Today, Lisa and Layne are joined by Dave Dowling of Ball Seed to discuss all things eucalyptus. They cover why eucalyptus is worth growing, the presence of “rogue” seedlings when starting from seed, plant productivity, harvesting and overwintering tips, the best varieties to grow, which varieties to avoid, and more. Listen to the podcast and learn the best tips and techniques for growing eucalyptus on your farm or in your garden!
