Home Living : January 19th 2010
2 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, January 19, 2010 Try a new vintage HOMELIVING In the garden Judy Horton is an adviser for Yates Plant a new eucalypt tree in the garden for a great effect. The Eucalyptus Vintage Red is quite different. It hasclaret-red leaves which canchange to purple or grey, depending on conditions, and can look almost black in certain light situations. Vintage Red, a form of the native sugar gum (Eucalyptus cladocalyx), has been selected for its unusualleaf colour and grafted on to a hardy sugar gum rootstock. It can grow to between 10m and 20m. If you're thinking that this is far too large for a suburbangarden, the good news is that Vintage Red responds particularly well to being coppiced. Coppicing means the plant canbe pruned back all over to produce a mini- forest of red-leafed shoots, and canbe trimmed annually to keep it to between 2m and 4m. Of course, if you have the space, you can let it grow into a large, shady tree. Vintage Red loves well-drained soils and, once established, is very drought-hardy. Mulch around the tree to prevent weed growth and retain soil moisture, feed occasionally with a native plant fertiliser and watch for, and remove, any unwanted shoots from below the graft. You mayhave to search for Vintage Red (supplies are still limited) but, as the year progresses, plants will be more available. yates.com.au built-in WARDROBES FACTORY & SHOWROOM Unit 1, 183-185 McCredie Rd, Guildford 9632 5444 Lic.
