Growing In Pots

Page:  1  2   >   >>   View All (13)

ContainerGrown


Eucalyptus make an excellent choice for growing in a pot. Either on a sunny patio or even indoors so long as there is plenty of light. Container-grown specimens will grow slower than those planted in the field, and would need to be kept pruned to a reasonable size.

As for pot size, the bigger the better.

Below is a selection of trees suited to being grown in pots
