Sow Eucalyptus seed indoors into a starter tray. Press the flower seed into the soil and lightly cover with sand. Keep the Eucalyptus Cinerea seeds moist by watering from underneath. Once the seedling is 4 - 5 inches tall, transplant it into container. Use a 1 - 2 gallon container with potting mix with the appropriate amount of granular 5-10-10 fertilizer with micronutrients. If you want to plant Eucalyptus Silver Drop directly in the garden, prepare a spot for it. If your soil is clay-like or sandy, mix humus (compost) into the existing soil to improve its quality.
