If I want to plant baby eucalyptus in my cut flowers field on first week on june, can I plant my seeds on march 9th in my heated greenhouses? I can't do it before because that is the date I start my heating..

Hello Claude,

Eucalyptus is a fairly slow-growing crop, and sowing seed on March 9th may not give you enough time to produce robust transplants. It takes about 8 weeks from sow to grow a transplantable eucalyptus seedling, and another 6-8 weeks to produce a finished plant in a 4-inch pot.

All in all, you're looking at a 14-16 week crop time from sow to a transplantable 4-inch into the field, so you would need to start seedlings closer to the first week of February. If you are ok with transplanting something smaller than a 4-inch into the field (ex. smaller pot, 1801- or another large-cell flat), an early March sow date may accommodate the schedule you're hoping for!
