Locally grown eucalyptus trees

Native to Australia, eucalyptus trees are a popular addition to any local garden. At All Green Nursery & Garden, we work with suppliers who cultivate these trees locally, so you can rest assured they're already acclimatised to Melbourne's unique soil and weather conditions.

And, because we save money on freight and shipping, we can pass the savings onto our customers. The eucalyptus trees in our nursery are not just beautiful and adaptable — they're affordable, so you can spend the extra money on other gardening supplies.

Eucalyptus tree delivery

Whether you want one gum tree, or a dozen, we can help. We can deliver your trees to your home or landscaping site for a set price, if you reside in one of the 15 designated zones near our nursery in Hoppers Crossing.

If you live outside this area, don't worry! We still deliver — except we base our prices on how far your site is from our nursery by kilometres. Of course, we can only deliver your order if we have stock available. If our supply of eucalyptus trees is dwindling, we will call you as soon as we can with an alternate solution.

Frequently asked questions

What advice should I follow for planting my eucalyptus tree?

Given they are native, eucalyptus trees are very easy to take care of! But to get your new plant thriving, make sure:

  • You remove any competition from around the new plant
  • Plant your eucalyptus in full sun, and in a position where the tree can grow to its full height unencumbered
  • During the first twelve months after planting, remove any weeds and grass from around the trunk (in a half metre radius)

How often should I water my eucalyptus tree?

Ideally, you should check the moisture of the soil at the base of your tree once a week. Push your finger into the soil, and if it is wet, you don't need to water your tree.

If it's dry, however, water directly onto the establishing root ball — not just at the base of the trunk. Give the soil a good soak.


How do I prevent pest infestations and disease?

Eucalyptus trees have evolved over time. Now, they have their own in-built pest and disease resistance mechanisms, such as shedding bark and emitting hormonal and chemical responses when attacked.

Your eucalyptus tree should only be vulnerable to pest and disease if it is weak. If you take care of your tree and give it the right support as it grows, this won't be a problem. However, it's always valuable to know which diseases may affect your new eucalyptus tree. Some diseases and pests include:

  • Silver leaf fungus: This fungal disease spreads quickly. If you notice the leaves of your gum tree silvering, it's time to call a professional.
  • Phytophthora: This disease affects the roots of trees, destroying tissue and blocking the plant's ability to absorb nutrients and water. Early symptoms include leaf yellowing and wilting, retention of dead leaves, and darkening of the fine roots.
  • Blue gum psyllids: These bugs suck the sap of your gum trees, rendering it devoid of nutrients and susceptible to decay.

Can I grow my eucalyptus in a pot?

Actually, yes! Contrary to what you might think, some species of eucalyptus trees thrive in potted environments. These include:

  • Tasmanian snow gums
  • Varnished gums
  • Alpine cider gums
  • Narrow leaved black peppermint (also known as the willow peppermint)
  • Victorian silver gum

Pots should be large enough, around half a metre in diameter, and have adequate drainage. These trees can't take extended periods of cold weather, however, so we recommend placing them outdoors during summer.
