Q.Eucalyptus Propagation

Anonymous added on April 24, 2011 | Answered

My friend has a well established Eucalyptus tree. She has seen no seed pods. Can this beautiful tree be cultivated from a cutting? If so, what is the procedure for rooting? When is the best time of the year to take the cutting, and how long should the cutting be?

Eucalyptus cuttings do not usually root that easily; therefore, this method of propagation rarely works. However, the tree does propagate easily from seeds, which can be started directly in the ground or in a container and later transplanted.
