Few people have probably heard of a phenomenon known rather morbidly as the widowmaker. Like so many tales, it originates from the dark and mysterious world of woods and forests. But it might just strike closer to home, especially if you have trees in your garden.
"Many thanks for the delivetry of our plant - a very nice specimen in perfect condition. We are so please with it, we shall be ordering another one today.." Thank you. M Brown
A fast growing evergreen tree or shrub. Grey leaves and white bark on mature specimens. Height in 20 years approx 25ft. Stake firmly when planting. Tolerant of poor, sandy soils. Plant out of cold winter winds.
The Cider Gum needs no introduction as probably the most popular of Eucalyptus, lovely silver blue young foliage contrasts well with the sage green mature foliage. Easy to grow, very hardy, and will eventually make a large tree.
